Bruce clearly took a great deal of time to plan for his sessions in advance, to make sure he created a strong curriculum to support students in learning the technology involved in film. The curriculum he developed included framing the talent, working with the camera in various settings, deciding on how the story needs to be treated, lighting, sound and editing. He provided both background information as well as hands-on experiences.

 

Right from the start, Bruce impressed me with his professionalism in his approach to mentoring young people, an approach that not only inspired confidence but encouraged young people to go further in their passion for filmmaking. As an educator, I observed how Bruce quickly assessed what skills each of the young people were bringing to their mentoring sessions and then he planned his lessons accordingly.

Bruce used his knowledge about the learning process to ensure skills were consolidated while also presenting meaningful challenges. Bruce celebrated the successes of his students in myriad ways. He attended film shoots and provided further support when they experienced difficulties with their projects. He introduced them to other community members involved in filmmaking and remained available when any of the youth felt they had a question for him.

Bruce helped us create an on-site studio in both the classroom and the barn in order to make instructional video as part of our reformatting of the curriculum of the Equine Sport Therapy Program. We worked through lighting, staging, scripting, and of course – video. The progression from basic video use to full editing using the Adobe Premiere Suite was a pleasure with Bruce’s help. He is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. We continue to consult with Bruce as we expand our use of video in our curriculum and incorporate other software in process. I highly recommend his services!!

Bruce is a fantastic teacher! I had to learn to use Final Cut Express on a Mac, and quickly! Bruce was great, and patient! He catered to what I needed to learn. He would always came to our next lesson with answers to questions and a great understanding of what he was teaching, and we had a lot of fun learning together! I would highly recommend him for any lessons on editing or video!
