  • Traveling to a new place was inspiring in itself but Matt and Loria shaped the experience into something entirely different. Daily production meetings kept us on track and focused.

    On site instruction throughout production created a real, professional atmosphere where asking questions was not only okay but encouraged.

  • Working with Matt and Loria was a delight! Not only because they were passionate, supportive and knowledgeable instructors, but they also each brought with them unique strengths, which allowed for a balanced focus on storytelling and technique.

  • Matt and Loria are a dynamic duo when it comes to teaching filmmaking!

    I am a better filmmaker thanks to this experience and I constantly find myself revisiting bits of wisdom that they shared during the month I spent in Kenya with them.
