Student Testimonials

Jackie was hands on.  He combined both the technical and creative aspects of film while sharing his real work experience.   The Q&A at the beginning of each class was most informative and opened up very good discussions based on the questions that were being asked.

The only thing I would change about this class... I wish it was even longer!! 

As a foundations class I think the syllabus was well thought out and explained everything needed for foundation. Jackie even went further, discussing and hinting at other ideas to take with us into auditions.
