Quotes from previous workshops

"Dan was an absolute delight to have as a instructor. He made good jokes, was incredibly enthusiastic about this class and was friendly to me and many others the entire time we attended. He made coming back the next day easy with his stories. He showed a great background in the logistics of business he worked in and I could tell almost instantly that he was a professional at what he does. Almost all of the information can be deemed as useful in some way or another, which will help me in many ways when trying to get into the movie industry." Megan Forristall

"I like the idea of teaching the class (workshop) like peeling back the layers of an onion. I think this allowed students to understand the material better at a speed they would be able to keep up with. I also liked the variety that the workshop had throughout the weekend. I enjoyed the personal stories about cinematography, learning about the different tools used in production, the different roles on the set of a production, and an in-depth look at what it is actually like to be on a production set." Norman Kahler

"Dan's class was well attended with about 25 folks. It literally went all day long! Great information, I took a ton of notes. It was all didactic initially, then we were able to create a scene with proper lighting, and then released to play with the gear! I walked away swimming with new terminology and an appreciation for what it takes on the set, as a team, and in production costs. That is initially why I went....."     Mary Beth

Dan has also been a guest speaker for; PATS, Ben Shedd's Production Class, and Micheal Marqulies Film Lighting Class.
