I really enjoyed the knowledge the instructors had to offer. The class size and venue were well thought out, allowing me personal questions with the instructors. As a filmmaker footage you capture is everything, after this class I’m confident in my ability to efficiently store and duplicate my footage in a way that not only more reliable and fast but also is know as the commercial standard.”
