There was a bit to much about the students to begin with but some great tips from the tutors so well worth a watch.

Nice to see some Legends teaching and some Pro's executing and facing challenges. Learned a lot. Thanks!

There are some interesting bits and anecdotes that teach valuable lessons, but the ratio of time spent watching the course to lessons learned is not worth it in my opinion. A lot of time is invested in explaining super basic stuff instead of being used to dive deep into the intricacies of wildlife filmmaking.
