Teaching Philosophy

"I have a threefold approach to teaching — technical, aesthetic and theoretical. Each of these facets is important to arrive at the gestalt of a comprehensive understanding of how to use video to communicate. I feel it is important to show students examples and then quickly put the tools of production into their hands, allowing them to learn while they do. This process not only is necessary to get students excited about the possibilities of the medium, it is necessary to teach them how to use video to realize their own unique vision."

About

"I work in video because I feel it is perhaps the most democratizing media force in the world at this time, perhaps in the whole of human history. The cost of the tools required to produce and distribute motion media products are at an all time low, making video production the populist voice for any individual who desires to have one. Today, people grumble a great deal about 'the media,' as though it is our adversary. Don't hate the media, become the media."
