In these programs, JT covers everything from photography, color grading and shot design to the hierarchy of a film set and communicating with actors. JT kept our one on one classes very engaging and I felt comfortable asking any questions I had if I didn’t understand something right away. I also really liked that JT gave tests and homework assignments to make sure all the information would stick. Most importantly for me, JT was always very encouraging when I felt frustrated and made himself available to answer any questions I had even outside of class.
