Student Testimonials

Just got back from Santa Monica after taking Aron’s 4-Day DV Crash Course. Best course I’ve ever taken and best teacher I’ve ever had. I can’t believe how much I learned about video in such a short time. I am raring to take on my next video for work and put some of what I learned into action. Thanks Aron, Doug, Chris and the rest of my classmates whose questions and enthusiasm gave me even more out of the class.
Kevin Haslbeck Calgary, Canada

A tremendous experience with more knowledge imparted than I thought humanly possible. Thanks Aron. You are a superstar!

Norm Robinson Fargo, North Dakota

Aron is an awesome teacher… Walked out feeling capable and confident that I could tackle my project, finish it, and create a great story!!!
