Elvin Eldria
"All is covered for minimalist filmmaking, and not only i-phone. Android is pretty well covered here. The course is very detailed, with examples, names of brand, prices. All kind of situations are covered: outdoor, studio, interview... name it. Also all about sound and light is detailed, with hardware options. I feel really it's worth the price, bravo!"
