This course was one of the main reasons I signed up for a membership. It really delivered, and Julio was entertaining and shows some great tips and tricks any DP can use. I wish ARRI would make a few more workshops like this where we have a cinematographer break down their process and show rehearsals and walk us through their production methods in a practical down to earth way. Julio does a great job of instructing you as if you were his apprentice, and less like a college student learning theory from a PhD. It was very practical and I enjoyed it very much, highly recommend

What a masterful teacher as well as craftsmen. Julio carries the class with such ease and good spirit. Effortlessly tossing in golden goose eggs of information one can only attain from working for 30 years in the industry.

Good course. Julio talking about his career was inspirational and he provided a lot great tips and additional food for thought. I especially enjoyed hearing from other key crew members, such as the 1st AC, DIT and Trinity Operator. Would recommend this course.

Good course with a lot of knowledge but when according to the interview with a DIT it's not full, when all interesting started and Arthur want to show the changes of the picture what he do on set, recording stop and this is the end of the lesson! Come on.. this is most interesting part and you didn't include it into the course? I hope we can see it some day.

Nice Course. Not very technical and perhaps for people who have not experienced working on set.
