Levels
  • All Levels

I have Produced over 25 films. My Box Office is over 1.5 Billion.

Methodology

I usually use a blend of the Socratic method, and interactive lecture when teaching Writing. When teaching Filmmaking/Producing, it's pure lecture, but again interactive. I can also teach students about every Production, but I'm very weak weak when it comes to Sound Mixing.

Background

I am a multi award winning Producer and Writer. (concealed information) My Resume speaks for itself, but I have taught film before, but usually teach my Crew the art and Craft of filmmaking. I am also well connected, and can help get my Students land in the Industry.
