Come Have Fun With Us!

To create this course, I wanted to simulate a classroom environment where students could discuss their ideas and create synergy. I turned to a home school theater group we've worked with for years to find a group of amazing, bright and talented youth to be the first to go through our program. They had such a fun time together and you will too as you laugh and learn along with us.



Damon has so much experience and he's able to take that experience and pour it into us and help us to understand in a way that allowed us to grow.



It's not just about making films,  but it's also about analyzing films... Not just how the films were made but the stories and how they have impacted the world.



Damon is so experienced, he's very good at helping beginner students become more confident... You learn so much without feeling like you're doing work!



This course has started me on my way to becoming so much more familiar with technology.  I thought it was the coolest homework I ever got to do!
