Social Media Officer | Woollahra Council
Xavier took the time to understand our needs and our equipment, and came to our office ready with a well-planned day of practical training. Xavier has a knack for cutting through the unnecessary bells and whistles and focusing on what you need. We were out in the field shooting a practice video within half an hour of when he arrived. Then it was back to the office for a supervised editing session - I couldn't believe how good the results were. Not only did I learn heaps of practical skills and a simple system for making video content, I came away from the day super excited to do more. I can't recommend enough.
Media & Communications Manager | Queensland College of Teachers
This was the most outstanding professional development I have ever done. It was practical and we learnt an enormous amount in a short amount of time – and it was fun. If you are looking to learn filming and video editing, I could not recommend this workshop highly enough.
Communications Designer | ARTC Inland Rail
Xavier’s video workshop was by far the most productive and game-changing training I've ever done. Xavier is a great teacher and has that rare teaching gift to guide you confidently across a new landscape of learning in real-time, achieving key learning milestones, hour by hour. I was amazed to cover filming, storytelling and producing a video in Premiere Pro, all in one day. Skills that would normally take a considerable investment of time and trial and error. Xavier removes all those barriers and teaches you exactly what you need to know, along with a generous checklist for future video projects. I cannot recommend his course enough.
Innovation Lead | MECCA
I recently completed the full day workshop with InFocus and it was fantastic! I completed the course with two colleagues, all of us with varying skillsets and Xavier did an incredible job of tailoring the day to those differences. He was an engaging instructor and kept the day moving so there wasn't a dull moment. My colleagues and I now feel so much more confident to film and edit content for work and we were provided with links and supporting material so we can cement all of the learning. If you are new to the world of video production I highly suggest booking in a session.
Digital Recruitment Officer | Sydney University
Xavier from InFocus ran an excellent filming and editing workshop for us in Sydney. He was very easy to communicate with in advance and came well prepared. As such was able to effectively tailor what we were learning to our industry and audience. It was a hands-on workshop that was as much focused on implementation as the theory. By the end of the day I felt ready to apply everything we learnt during the workshop for our own videos.
Gold Coast Health
Xavier is a wonderful teacher and I can’t recommend his workshops enough. He was patient and supportive and made the experience so positive! I was really impressed by his flexibility and ability to adapt. He was really good at tailoring his workshop and teaching style to suit my needs/goals and skill levels and dealt with crazy weather throwing his plans even further out the window like an absolute pro. He was always calm, confident, and positive no matter what happened, and made the experience so great.
Senior Marketing & Communication Officer | University of Queensland
Xavier delivered a brilliant video training for my team a couple of months ago. I've done other video training before and this one is really making a difference. Xavier explains things in a way that is very clear and easy to understand, you get to practice there and then, and he even leaves you with an awesome video and cheat sheet at the end. I would absolutely recommend the training session for corporate teams, it has made an enormous difference to our team and has given us the confidence to make and edit our own videos!
Associate Director, Strategic Communications | University of the Sunshine Coast
Just a quick note to say how valuable and enjoyable our team from the University of the Sunshine Coast found your recent InFocus workshop. In just one day we covered so many practical, hand-on applications of filming and editing, all tailored to specifically meet the needs of our Marketing and Strategic Communications Department. We all walked out of the workshop filled with confidence and enthusiasm to use our new skills and insights to create engaging, impactful content.
Legal Editor, Publishing | Judicial Commission of New South Wales
As a member of a small government agency, I found Xavier's small group format to be of particular value. Xavier's video training workshop was tailored to our needs and jam-packed with all the skills we needed in order for us to be able to make our own corporate videos. I was amazed what we were able to achieve in one day of training, and excited to put our new skills to use.
Marketing and Communications Team Leader | QLD Parliament
Highly recommend the one-day video production and editing course with InFocus Workshops. The course was tailored to our needs and provided excellent hands-on training and practical skills. Everyone felt much more capable of producing high quality videos by the end of the course. Xavier also took the time to provide recommendations for equipment and offered ongoing support.
Communities & Communications | RioTinto (QAL)
Our teacher, Xavier, was patient and provided really useful, clear and specific tips to our technology/needs throughout the entire process. The content we covered was exactly what we needed to skill up. I was really impressed with Xavier's analysis of our company's guidelines around videos and using this to inform our training. Over the day, we focussed on techniques and editing processes aligned with these guidelines to ensure our skills matched our requirements. Xavier also provided take home guides and recommendations for equipment to boost our video capability.
Educational Designer | Goodstart Institute
As an Educational Designer with a focus on providing high quality professional learning to adult learners, I was suitably impressed by Xavier's workshop content and delivery style. Good professional learning should be relatable, collaborative and future focused - Xavier delivered on this with a session that was well planned and tailored to our specific needs of wanting to have the skills to easily develop short, sharp videos of a consistent standard. The session was hands on, well paced and flowed well. Xavier was very personable and knew his content well. Thanks for a fun day Xavier!
Marketing Assistant | Bayset Australia
We started with a limited idea about videography and ended with the confidence in providing high-quality videos for corporate use within the one-day workshop. Xavier was an excellent instructor – straight to the point exactly what we need. The workshop was also great fun and full of useful information, we didn’t feel bored or too overwhelmed at all. Highly recommend!
Communications Manager | South Eastern Community Connect
Xavier was warm and engaging, and taught clearly and succinctly. I felt the course was excellent value, as we were able to upskill four members of our team in vital video training for the future. Xavier made it easy for us to understand the filming and editing process, and gave us the opportunity to put our newfound skills into practice. Xavier also provided excellent resources and instructional videos for the future, giving us confidence and reassurance. I highly recommend InFocus Video Workshops if you're looking to make more professional, engaging videos.
Library Communications Officer | Woollahra Council
Xavier came to my workplace for a one day videography workshop, and I am so happy with the skills I learned in just that short amount of time. He was able to tailor his lesson to both a more advanced and more beginner student (me) at the same time, and helped us think through what would be our most practical equipment and use cases. I am really impressed with the cheatsheet he provided at the end ~ it includes tips for my own camera model! Would highly recommend this for anyone looking to dive into videography.
Senior Content Specialist | PM Partners
Xavier delivered a fantastic learning experience for our group of novice video producers. The 1-day course met all our expectations and within days of completing it we've been able to create, edit and publish our own short videos. Xavier covered a lot of ground on the day but broke everything down into simple, easy-to-follow steps and has also provided some really useful resources for us to tap into and help embed our learning.
Communications Lead | AMPC
The AMPC comms team worked with Xavier from InFocus to conduct a full day of filming and video editing training. Xavier was engaging and tailored the session to our training needs. The content was clear, succinct, and easy to understand. The resources and recommendations Xavier provided were extremely helpful and he went above and beyond to ensure we were set up for success post-session. We now feel confident to create professional videos and would recommend this course to other teams. Thank you Xavier for your professionalism.
Marketing Manager | Avenue Dental
I had a one on one video workshop and it was absolutely amazing. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to level up their marketing or learn videography skills. The overall structure of the day was great, I learnt how to successfully film videos with the equipment I had in a few different styles. I learnt about the lighting and sound quality as well for filming. After lunch we went through the whole editing process and software. For a one day course, it was JAM packed full of information – I learnt SO much. Fabulous value for money and would recommend anyone to do this!
Founder | The Coronis Group
Xavier designed a custom video workshop for our team and presented it during our annual sales conference. We've received great feedback from our team as he provided practical tips and advice that anyone with a camera phone could implement. Thank you Xavier, great content and great presentation.
Principal Business Data Coach | BHP
I was wanting to increase our teams online presence with videos. I purchased premiere pro but it was rather intimidating to learn from scratch. I booked a 1 day filming and editing session with InFocus. Pearce came to my workplace discussed my requirements and assessed my equipment. The focus of the day was based on the outcomes I was looking for. At the end of the session I had created quality videos. Couldn't be happier with the InFocus service. Thanks Pearce.
Brand Manager | Leukaemia Foundation
Xavier came in and delivered an informative, interactive and no-fuss workshop for the Leukaemia Foundation's brand and marketing team. He's great to work with and I had very positive feedback from colleagues. The skills, tips and tricks he's passed on are proving to be invaluable to us.

In all I would highly recommend Xavier to anyone wanting to learn more about video and shooting pictures.

Owner | Appetite 4 The Wild
Taking this training with Xavier is one of those things in life I should of done years ago. What I learnt on this course has placed my video editing skills years in front of where I would have been. Xavier has an easy to follow training structure that helps it all fall into place. I was very impressed with what we got through and would totally recommend the workshop.
Business Development Officer | Department of Housing and Public Works
I use InDesign a lot for content creation and foolishly thought it would be easy to teach myself Premiere Pro. Having someone like Xavier run through the entire process and the skills you learn from experience really sped up my learning. All of it was incredibly valuable, but learning the process step by step means the skills will definitely stick.
Public Health Nutritionist | Health and Wellbeing QLD
I highly recommend the workplace filming and editing training course. It was incredibly practical and highly tailored to our workplace's needs. I came to the workshop with no real experience in videography and by the end of the day my colleagues and I had filmed and edited a great short video. We know what equipment we need (and don't need!), how to approach video projects with a clear plan, and how to bring that plan to fruition. I've gone from daunted to confident in the space of a day and that's thanks to this fantastic training.
Principal & Director | Catalyst Migration
Xavier tailored the workshop in accordance to our business needs – it was professional, structured and the information was delivered in an easy to understand manner which is important for non tech people like me. The best part was that we got to apply what we learnt and created our own video by the end of the day. We received some really good, practical tips from lighting, recording to editing and what equipment to buy. The post workshop follow up was also excellent. This workshop was definitely worth our investment and time.
General Manager | Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics
Exactly what we needed to get real about videos! Xavier in a really structured way help our team to speedup learning process, It is amazing how we improved in just one session.

At the end he delivers all the takeaway reference documents, so you don’t forget info with time.
Teacher | St Thomas More College
Xavier and the team at InFocus, have done an amazing job. This is the second year in a row that they have held tutorials for my secondary Media/ Film, Television and New Media classes and I look forward for a continued relationship with this great company. Xavier devised an hour lesson tutorial perfect for beginners but also a more refined version for students who have had past experience with Adobe Premiere Pro. . He bought a plethora of knowledge and gave students the chance to see how an industry professional works.

Super glad we found Xavier and I couldn't recommend him enough.
9 News | Social Media Director – Queensland Police Union
Xavier was very approachable and very knowledgeable. He answered every question I had and not only demonstrated how to complete the task, but also ensured I attempted it myself.

This was a spot on course deriving the exact needs I had, not a one size fits all approach.

It was so useful, I will arrange for another session when we have practiced what we have learned so far. Would definitely recommend Xavier.

Highly recommend Xavier as a superb technician with a fine eye for detail, and a brilliant, caring and masterful teacher.

Senior Media and Communications Advisor | Health and Wellbeing QLD
My team recently participated in a filming and editing workshop with Xavier in our workplace. I came into the workshop with only limited experience of working with video content creation previously, and couldn’t believe how much I learnt by the end of the day, from scripting all the way through to editing and exporting a polished product. The training was easy to follow, with a focus on hands-on learning, and I walked away with the knowledge and skills to be able to get started right away filming and editing video projects.
Merrin & Troy
Full-Time Travel Family | @tribegonetravelling
We called Xavier just before our family embarked on a full-time travel adventure as we wanted to learn how to create and edit videos of our trip. Xavier tailored the hands-on workshop to our exact needs and made the editing process fun and easy to learn. We walked out feeling confident and excited to start creating our own high-quality videos. We couldn’t have asked for a better teacher.
Senior Graphical Officer | Skin Deep Learning
The business I work for is starting to move into educational videos, and a few of us know the basics of Premiere Pro, but we definitely needed tips and direction of our videos. Xavier gave us so many great ideas in the planning and recording of our videos, and then showed us even more in the editing stage, which will allow us to work more efficiently and produce much higher quality videos that we thought we could. Xavier altered the session to our requirements and only spent time on things that we needed to gain an understanding of.
Founder | Yoga For Stress
Xavier's full-day workshop was excellent and I totally recommend it. My aim was to learn how to take videos from my phone for social media, and for developing online learning. I wanted to be able to edit and produce them myself. The workshop exceeded my expectations. I walked away with new ideas, inspired to start shooting, and with information about the equipment and resources I need to get started. Xavier is a positive person, passionate about his craft, and a patient trainer. Thanks Xavier for a great day.
Owner | Our Epic Australia
I didn’t have the time available to sift through hours and hours of YouTube videos... I wanted to get up and running and start editing with a sufficient knowledge of Davinci Resolve or Adobe that would allow me to put together some reasonable videos that aren’t too amateurish. Following my first lesson with Xavier I have been able to achieve this. I look forward to taking advantage of his experience and knowledge.
Dr Li Kheng Chai
Research Fellow | Health & Wellbeing QLD
Xavier's workshop is interactive and his teaching is easy to follow. He took time to understand my objectives and then tailored the workshop to suit my needs - from video conceptualisation, shooting to editing. I had zero experience with using Premiere Pro but after the workshop I'm confident to make my own videos with the tips and tricks that I learned from Xavier. I would highly recommend InFocus Video Workshops to anyone interested in video production.
Queensland Family & Child Commission
Xavier's workshop has refreshed me the tools to complete some video editing for my workplace. Although I have experience in editing, the workshop has given me some tricks in making the process quicker hence making my time more productive. Thanks heaps Xavier!
