This is very much taking you on your first walk as a toddler holding your finger carefully at every step and guiding you rightly for additional information which is a must have. Never felt so involved in learning the technique of film making as this mini course provided. I will highly recommend this course to anyone planning to get the perfect intro to venture into the wide world of documentary films making.

Documentaries are my new career choice, after spending the last 20 years in business development and marketing in healthcare. Your Starter Kit and method of presenting information is exactly what I needed to put things in high gear. The forms, checklists, and advice help get things moving from concept to screen. Thanks!
