    So I was on DVXUser last night, and I saw a banner ad for Digital Cinema Course. I thought, "Eh, why not?" So I clicked it, and it took me to their page. I was blown away by what was offered on their DVD course. It honestly looks fantastic. However, it's a little pricey for me, and I didn't want to just drop that kind of money (once I save it up) without hearing from a 3rd party about it. I didn't know if anyone here has used it or not, and I'd love to hear some testimonies of either good or bad. I mean, I'm pretty sure it's not BAD, but even mediocre is not good. I'm sorry if this isn't allowed (since they are a sponsor), and I understand if this is deleted. Also, if you'd like to tell me via PM's, that's cool, too. Well, thanks for your time!

    I bought the whole package, the base course plus the compositing series and audio intermediate guide, and I learned a ton from it. It's basically film school in a box. And you're only spending $500 as opposed to $40k per year.

    ^ Let the age old debate begin.... again... and again! haha.

    If cinematography wasn't infinite, I'm sure I would have found the end by now.

    I have the course, minus the compositing and audio courses and thought it was pretty good. I think there are differing views (obviously) on how the information is presented, but I don't think you can go wrong with this. There is a lot of information from the beginning to the more advanced.

    Of course it depends on your level of experience and how you learn, etc.

    I went to film school, but still buy most training aids because I feel that the learning process is continuous and you never know where that one great kernel of info will come from.

    I also say I'll never buy another book on screenplay writing, but I always do, because there will be one or two bits that makes it worth it....training DVD's, books, etc are the same in my opinion.

    $500 might be pricey, but imagine what went into the making of this product.

    My two bits.
    I know how to do it. You just wouldn't know it from the way that I do it.

    Yeah, don't let this get into "Film school vs. this DVD series" That's not what this is. Film school is NOT an option. While I understand that for some it is, great! I just CAN NOT go to film school given where I am currently in life.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to say, "How can they charge so much?" I think that's a very fair price for what they seem to be offering. I just want to make sure that it really IS as good as it looks. Once I spend more than $150 on anything, I analyze it over and over and over again.
