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.

The instructor (Leah) seemed like a nice person, but should not be a teacher. It was truly a waste of money. I didn’t even attend the last class because the first two were so meandering and purposeless. I think it’d be smart if DCTV would vet their instructors a bit more if they’re going to charge that kind of money. Thanks!
