I thought the class was very informative. The instructor was very patient. She made me feel very uncomfortable. This was a great first experience for me at DCTV. I will take another class.

The class was amazing. The instructor explained everything really well, answered all questions and made sure we walked away with how to operate a camera!

Informative but very heavy on technical aspects and less on artistic side. Good info to know, but wished we had more opportunity to delve into the creative aspects of cinematography.

Ivo is a very good and generous teacher. The class was by the book and went fast but it gives a good look into the basic and perhaps most useful areas of the program. when people fell behind or had trouble he went to their aid.

The class provides a basic understanding of After Effects. Teacher was really great - clear, patient and a thoughtful explainer. The actual examples that we went through felt very outdated visually, but the bones were there and I feel confident in my ability to apply what I learned elsewhere.

The class was great! The teacher was down-to-earth, helpful and cool. Would definitely recommend. Felt like I got a useful overview of the program at an affordable price.
