We then spent a week teaching a Mobile Film Summer Camp with the Carlsbad High School Film Academy organized by RoniSue Player and Instructor Jeff Brandmeyer.

“It was great. I think you’re enthusiastic, you’re very knowledgable, you get along great with the kids, you’re very patient and you have a lot of great information—and I think the kids really enjoyed it. They seemed like they were very focused and engaged through the whole process—all four days. And they were five-hour days, so that’s saying a lot.” Jeff Brandmeyer Instructor, Carlsbad High School Film Academy.
