“The videos are a big leap forward for contemporary classroom videos, utilizing clean greenscreen, working professionals and 16:9. The film is well-paced and will be a great addition to classroom instruction. It is designed and constructed in ways both interesting and accessible to student filmmakers. I hope to utilize the material in my classroom!”
