I would encourage a great number of my peers to join this course in the future. Trevor, Layton, as well as everyone else involved are incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, and engaging individuals. I have learned not only how to use a camera, but duly the importance behind the usage of a camera and its ability to navigate, captivate, and provoke an audience through various artful techniques. Likewise, the in depth teachings of past films and documentaries of all kinds were both interesting as well as informative - to the extent in which one may even consider them inspiring. I can honestly say I have thoroughly enjoyed this program and thought it increasingly compelling with each passing week.
