Filmmaker and Youtuber

Hi, I’m Jordy and I hosts one of the biggest YouTube channels about filmmaking & video editing; Cinecom.

With more than 2 million subscribers, we publish weekly tutorial videos. After graduating from film school in 2012, I immediately began teaching online where my real passion lays.

I’ve never liked the way education works. So I wanted to do something about it. With the classes I produce, I try to separate myself from the general crowd and deliver a class experience rather than some information thrown at a student.

Take a look at my unique classes, I’m sure you’ll enjoy :-)
