Before the release of this book I had the pleasure of working one on one with Rachel - she inspires me! My video production got better and it continues to do so from her encouragement and support... Now THIS BOOK totally tops it off. Rachel's journey into the world of video was a hard, long, lesson filled road and she generously shares those experiences in this book to help... YOU! Reading this book, I'm inspired (once again) and it's my 'go to book' when I'm feeling the overwhelming weight of producing good videos because Rachel puts things into perspective and very achievable steps. Thank you Rachel!
I just read this wonderful powerful book by Rachel Dunn. I found Rachel’s book interesting, well written, helpful and easy to follow for anyone passionate about creating better videos, to either market themselves or their business or for someone who wants to improve their skills making videos as a hobby and I particularly like that you don't need to buy up lots of expensive equipment to produce professional work. The book is full of optimism and inspiration, video tips and secrets, as well as stories of Rachel’s tough journey to where she is today which is compelling reading in itself and hard to put down. I would recommend this book as a guide, even a great gift, to anyone who wants to think outside the box and make stand out, knock 'em dead videos for whatever reason using creativity, fun and simple techniques.
Better Videos is a helpful, easy to read, easy to apply approach to making you successful on camera. Rachel certainly knows her clientele well. The problems she highlights are all relatable and her approach to them are easy to follow and apply. I'm not a big reader as I have dyslexia but I found I whizzed through this book. Well written, down to earth approach, sprinkled with years of experience, I would recommend this to anyone who has any type of video projects ahead of them, particularly women in business, starting up. Thanks Rachel, great work and congratulations.
Rachel is an inspiring and outstanding person. Her own journey has brought her to this wonderful place where she can inspire and motivate others to be as creative and as outstanding as she is. This book isn't just about making good videos, it will take you on a journey to better understanding yourself, what motives you and clear a path for you to be the best version possible of YOU. Together, Rachel and Michael are there to care and support you through your journey of making better videos and you couldn't have chosen a better team. Good luck!
This book is just what I needed when I needed it. I've been struggling to do 'how to' videos for my website and finding the whole process a bit overwhelming. I am so glad I found Rachel. Thankyou for your amazing tips and advice and for sharing your story.

Emailed review by... Soleil "Rachel has written an inspiring, practical and heart-felt book that will save you thousands of wasted hours and money. Her experience as a video director shines through as does her passion for uplifting women to put themselves out there on video to inspire others. Personally it has helped me get so much clearer on my avatar and given me practical tips to improve the quality of my videos. Thoroughly recommend it"
I know Rachel personally and professionally and couldn't wait for this amazing book to be available. Rachel is a master in her field, ahead of her time, dynamic and clever. She has an amazing ability to bring out the very special essence and energy of everyone who she works with and "brings them and their business to life" with video. She also teaches us in this book how to start doing that for ourselves. Love it.
There are so many ideas and hints in this book, that inspire me to get some gear and start working on making my videos better. The experience that Rachel and Michael have is evident in her writing style. Easy to understand what she describes in her words.
