About Jerry

Do you want to make vacation movies people want to watch? Do you have a message that you have been working to get out to the public? Do you want to make the next Star Wars? I am a documentary film maker with both in class and online teaching experience. I have degrees in radio, TV and film production, and I have made several documentaries. I also do motion graphics and computer animation.

I like hands on teaching and use drawings to go with any explanation. People don't all learn at the same pace and in the same way, so I observe the student's response. Learning is a job, but that shouldn't mean that it cannot be fun and interesting! Because of the technical nature of these courses, I do not recommend young children for this material. I have been working in digital media for over 20 years. I have made TV commercials, documentaries, posters, brochures and educational video.
