Education is something that is near and dear to my heart. I love teaching and helping filmmakers learn new ways to reach their goals. The blog and podcast are great resources to start. If you would like more detailed instruction and personal attention that I would recommend signing up for a course. I will continue to add courses that I produce in the future.
