Pretty good introduction to video. Easy to navigate through. I would have liked to learn more about sound though. Any sound I was able to record wasn't good. Granted the material went over mics and some tips on recording but I think it would have been helpful if they went more in depth. Maybe have a section on recording with mixers, decibels, frequencies, and post processing of sound. The instructor I had was very helpful with his feedback.
This is a great course! Great instructors!
