A tip from the video that helped me the most is the pan/tilt tip. Here you have to hang 9 papers with numbers in a square with rows of 3. Then you position your camera on a tripod in front of the numbers and let someone call out numbers randomly. You have to pan or tilt to that number, maybe even focus pull and do this all as smooth as you can. This exercise really helped me with my camera movements and also helped me getting used to the tripod.
