I used handbrake to turn a 11 gig video to a 3 gig video BUT...
#1
Without significant quality loss I would to get a 3gig  m4v video file down to 1 to 1.5 gig.  

Is there a format or a way to get this done?

Pack it in an MKV.

You can also re-encode it with H265, that would save more space.

Well MKV only chopped off 300 meg.
I'm trying H265 now but wow it really slows down my computer

I don't doubt that.  Runtimes on Handbrake can vary pretty widely depending on the speed of your CPU.

It worked! Got the file down to 1.5 gig with h265 but it was murder on my computer. Honestly, I was hoping for less than a gig but I'm more than happy with 1.5 gigs

Next you could try to pack the h265 into an MKV Rolleyes  

Using FFMPEG command line would allow you to modify the CRF to sacrifice some quality for space, eg: https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/38380
