What filmmakers are saying

You're a great teacher and your courses (paid and free) are the best out there for Davinci Resolve. Glad I signed up with you.

Patrick Corbett

Straight Forward Awesome Course. I’ve learnt what others might take months if not years to learn within just a couple of days.


It's really a challenge to create a course that neither moves along with the material too fast or too slow. This one moved along at a very pleasing pace. I never felt lost because it was going too fast or bored because it was going slow.

Billy Sheahan

I really love your style of teaching. I bought and tried a number of other courses and yours is by far the best. Concise. Clear. Thorough. Very well done!

Richard Pryde Hughes

This would have cut a great deal of time off of my learning curve if it was available when I started.

Woody Sanford
