Just finished it - I did learn a few things as well. Couple of comments:
- the pace is a bit slow at the start.
- I would have loved a few examples of the things that were discussed. Something along the lines: "here's an example of the problem we are talking about, here's an example when we do the right thing to mitigate the issue". It gets much better in the second half of this part, for example with the demonstration of the benefits of the Marshall monitor. Before the tutorial, I used to think, "bigger version of of the camera screen, big deal!" Now I clearly understand how useful they can be.
- Michael talks a bit too much ;-0 Not really a complaint, Michael is obviously more comfortable than Chris on that side of the camera... Still some times I had the impression that he was basically summarizing information provided by Chris and Chris's only role was to agree.
- fun note: the gardener and the cleaning lady(?)'s hand were definitely more annoying than the chirping bird.
- what a cliffhanger at the end!
This is meant as constructive minor criticism: the tutorial is extremely valuable for a newbie like me, and I would have avoided at least three significant mistakes in a small project I shot this week-end if I had seen it before: 1- the face tracking that was following the pianist became confused by the partition's page turner. 2- the sound recorder hiccuped at a falling chair 3- my frame rate choice was probably sub-optimal for the lighting conditions.
thanks - will definitely go on with the serie.
