It's difficult to find resources specifically for commercial directing, and Jordan has, time and time again, proven himself to be one of the best sources of education in the industry. His Masterclass is certainly no exception. It’s filled with knowledge that is easily applicable to various levels of directing, and that can help set you on the path towards mastery. Best of all, it’s topped off with Jordan’s signature witty flourish. Thanks Jordan!

This course is solid gold. Jordan tells you exactly how he does it. He simply and practically takes you through his craft. (Which is really what aspiring Directors need to know, whether they know it or not.) And he doesn't shy away from exploring the more elusive aspect of Directing, taste. Then he tells you how to get work, how to make yourself marketable, and how those things add up to building a career. What you get here is THE practical program for how to approach and execute your material, lead, work with people, solve problems, tell a story, and more... and HOW Jordan has applied it 1,200 times, and counting. If you want those kinds of numbers one day, then listen to what Jordan has to say. Watch this course. Get his book. Go to Commercial Directing Bootcamp. Say thank you, because he sure didn't get what he's giving here in such a distilled form, and then get out there and do likewise.

This masterclass was fantastic. I have 10 years of directing experience, but am newer to the world of commercial directing. This masterclass (and most of Jordan's work) gives me priceless insight into the process of the advertising world so that I can, in fact, respect that process. If you're familiar with Jordan's podcast and book, you get an even deeper dive into some of his best practices and experiences. His BTS footage and case study is worth the price alone.

Jordan Brady's Directing Master Class is the best online course for the filmmaking business by far. In it you will go step by step in the whole process of directing a commercial with a hands on approach and point that only someone with years of experience can have. If you desire to work as a commercial director, this is the course for you. If you read Brady's book "Commercial Directing Vodoo", this course is a deep dive into the elements found in the book. There are severall PDF's with examples of treatments and storyboards that cannot be found anywhere else on the internet - Rare Golden Nuggets for any commercial Director in the making. You will also see spots that went on air and the whole process in making them into being, which is fantastic. Jordan Brady lays out and explain the entire process dor you to learn and respect. Amazing!

This course is perfect for anyone who is trying to break into directing commercials or if you're anything like me and have been at it for a few years and looking to dive deeper into the process. There is very little reliable information on the internet about the commercial space. Things like the bidding process, casting, what to put in a treatment (along with sample treatments), and case studies of actual commercials for larger brands are near impossible to come by. Jordan even took the time to chat over the phone about the craft, where my career is going, and gave some notes on my reel, which to me was 1000% above and beyond. I would highly recommend the investment in yourself.

...is Jordan Brady put this online. I asked Jordan awhile ago if this could happen as those outside of North America have a tough time to attend the bootcamp and he didn't seem so keen. Here we are - Great stuff! While I still want to attend the in-person bootcamp, this was well worth it. Sure there are lots of basics but some great tips mixed in there. I'm making this required viewing for everyone on my team. And of course everyone please - Respect the Process! Note: Brendan's testifies to an increased tolerance to whiskey consumption and mastery of homemade pasta in this review. It has been modified to fit the format.
