Jason, 1 lesson with David

Very knowledgeable and good to work with

For my first session, David helped me decide on the 3D software that would work best for my current project PLUS helped me determine what to focus on next with Adobe After Effects. I found him to be very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about the software and what could be accomplished with it. He has a good sense of humour, a pleasant manner, and is very easy to work with. I'm looking forward to learning lots of wonderful things and look forward to our forthcoming tutorials!
