Students Love FilmSkills

“Overall these vides are very informative and, collectively, offer a far superior learning experience than plowing through a text book."
- Student
“It is much better than a textbook to teach the medium in a visual way. It’s great to see examples of the lessons through a camera rather than reading about what changing the aperture does to depth of field, for example, than seeing it as stills in print.”
- Student
“These videos teach everything that should be taught in the classroom that film professors may or may not have time to cover.”
