Taking Shane’s Inner Circle for a Test Drive

February 13, 20173 Comments

Inner Circle

I’m a huge fan of education. Never stop learning! Never!!! Once you think you have it all figured out then try a new way. This approach has kept me energized and engaged in all aspects of what I love about the craft. Shooting, lighting, capturing sound and editing it all together.

Not only do I like to learn but also love to teach. This is why I joined up with LinkedIn Learning, also known as Lynda.com. I love to share and I think this blog has been a great way to do this as well.

Outside of being a Lynda.com/LinkedIn Learning subscriber I don’t hold any other memberships really. Today I decided to give Shane Hurlbut’s Inner Circle a try for a month and see what it’s all about. After I’m done i’ll let you know what I think.

Outside of knowing about Shane as a DP and meeting him at a few events I’m impressed with his openness to sharing and teaching the film making crowd pretty much all aspects of the craft. I’m looking forward to diving into the content.

The monthly membership is $17.95 and yearly is $185. You save $30 on the yearly membership. Not expensive but like a gym membership if you don’t use it it’s expensive. One twist here is you don’t have FREE access to some content created by Shane that was posted before you singed up. This is a little strange and don’t understand this fully yet. From what I can see you can get discount prices for courses by emailing them for special additional pricing. Since I’m new here I don’t know what the pricing is.

I’m curious on your thoughts as well. Do you subscribe to sites that you feel are great? Let me know plus what do you think of Shane’s Inner Circle?

Time to take my journey. See you on the other side with my thoughts.

  1. Interested in your review of it once you’ve had some time to dig around! Thanks Erik

    I signed up last year but cancelled before the month was up. It found the content was OK but difficult to navigate and not worth the price for me. What I was most interested in was his lighting tutorials that he teases in his video intros. Turns out that’s not included in the inner circle, that’s a $400 on demand Vimeo course. I was a little bitter about the bait and switch (or sales funnel if we’re being nice) so I never bought the lighting course. If I did it again, I would skip the inner circle and just buy his premium content directly.

      I agree Mike.. that was the exact same experience… wanted the lighting classes and then he wanted money for that. I think its a bad way to run it.. I cancelled before the month was over aswell.
