    I received the DCT disks yesterday and watched the first three disks straight through. I can’t say enough about these DVDs. They are AWESOME! I learned more about how to make a movie from the disks I’ve watched so far than the entire stack of film theory books I’ve read. Even if you’re in film school, you should consider buying these.

    The disks are laid out in an extremely effective way. What they do is teach you how to make a movie while a professional crew sets up each shot. As they work, each professional talks to you about the equipment they are setting up, why they are doing it, why that particular model/brand of equipment, how to do it safely, and so on. Each of the people setting up the various shots is an industry professional and it’s amazing to see how efficiently they work. Also as they work, the narrator walks you through various practical tips and theories that help you tie everything together.

    These DVDs are the closest thing to learning by working on a real set. However if you were working on a real set, nobody would have the time to keep explaining things to you. Also, you’d be stuck doing only one or two specific tasks vs. learning the entire range of skills needed on the set.

    This is the best practical resource for filmmakers you’ll ever find. You could literally watch these disks, skip film school, and then learn by making your own movies.

    This is the first product on Amazon I have ever reviewed and it’s because I’ve been so impressed. I live in Chandler, AZ and I have friends that are paying tens of thousands of dollars going to Collins College pursuing film careers, but I think it’s a huge waste of time and money. The investment in these DVDs might seem kind of steep at first, but it beats the tens of thousands you’d pay on tuition and student loans. Buy these DVDs and save the rest on making your films!

    Most of my education thus far has revolved around articles on the net and several books, but nothing has been as comprehensive as this course. The course goes over everything you can imagine. I’ve learned about script writing, editing, lighting, and even make up — which is something I’m not interested in, but shows how thorough the creators were. I’m pretty sure that I have all the basics covered for shooting a strong film now.

    There was an issue with two of the DVDs not reading on my computer and I contacted the website’s customer service and got replacements by the end of that same week. The fantastic customer service is what inspired me to spend time in endorsing this product.

    I bought this because of the reviews, so I had to add my own to encourage other people who are interested to go ahead and take the plunge. I’ve invested in a lot of resources to learn this stuff, but nothing has touched this guy’s training series. He really wants you to learn and he does his best to cover every single thing you might need to know. If he was your own dad trying to help you get into the business, he couldn’t do a better or more thorough job.
