Thanks to this course and group we’re filming our first Documentary. Some stills from the first day. Another exciting note, Rijul Kathuria from this group is on set with us!

Hi all. I want to share my big win from last weekend. After being halfway through Module 3. I had the opportunity to be a photo set director which is my biggest and first set out of the country. As Mark Bone and Michael Del Monte said in the course. Be flexible and hide your ego. This advice is the best advice one could get. Work on a big client, take opportunities, and keep going. Another win was meeting a film director from Denmark and a DOP from Sweden with a lot of experience. Chatting with these two was another inspiration for my career path. Have a great Monday all and follow your dreams.

Maximize the value of what’s on your hard drive and turn your footage into a film with the step-by-step system we wish we had when we started our filmmaking career
