He was by far the best part of this course and really helped me grow my video knowledge. He was easy to work with and allowed me to pursue the ideas I wanted but also challenged me to think outside of the box.

Mark was encouraging and understanding. He understands that we are all in different situations but are dedicated to furthering our education. He was kind and compassionate when life got in the way. With such a positive environment, it was a safe space to learn!”
