Michael Wohl does an excellent job in conveying his knowledge of cinematography, in a fun and inspiring course. I get a kick out of the fact that after watching this course, I now know (and could even explain) the what the really cool term "zolly" means. Cheers Graham.
I'm just starting to dedicate some time to make movies, and this course helped me a lot. Simple things that can make a movie look good.
