Reviewed October 28, 2012
Our teacher, the actual person listed, was most informative, yet very quick, as he had to be, to get all of this info, into 4 hours, even going over by maybe 25 minutes. Well worth the price. I don't necessarily agree with some of his proven techniques, but it was by no means rammed down my throat. Its for me to decide, and pick and choose exactly what I wish to retain. But I'm a rogue filmmaker, basically a sub-contractor, subbing out 70% of my work, who DO USE his method. These are the pros, and I'm their boss. I hire them, to carry out my orders. However, they apparently are following his every word taught, as seen, by their work. So to sum it all up. Highly Recommended, whether you agree with this proven method and instructor or not. It works!!!! I'm just not a cinema writer, nor wish to be. But that's only 20% of what he teaches. So you're going to learn a lot more. Makes me want to just do it ALL by myself now and save a ton of money--in the millions, even.
