Michael structured our course around our needs and exceeded our expectations. Everyone left with new information and confidence to put their new skills into practice. I would recommend Michael to anyone looking for basic videography training or to brush up their more advanced skill set. His hands-on approach was effective and fun! – Keri Burson, Director of Marketing Adolfson & Peterson Construction
Corporate training follow-up from clients
Sometimes you just need what you need and nothing more. That’s exactly what Michael brought to us. We needed to know how to capture short video clips on our flip cameras and then edit them to post on the company Intranet and for other company uses. Michael took into consideration our skills, needs and output requirements and taught us just what we needed to know. A very cost-effective solution for our needs. – Jacque Williams, Jeppesen – A Boeing Company
