There is no other place on the web where you can get this raw insight into how commercials get made. I don't know why other directors are afraid to show themselves on set. What I do know is that Jordan is constantly talking to "you" during the shoots, sprinkling real world wisdom at you as its happening in real time and its invaluable.

Just finished shadowing you on set and I think you executed this course perfectly. I really felt like I was getting some great pieces of information that filled in many questions I've had. From the time I attended bootcamp to watching this course I've Directed 30+ commercials. This was great to give me perspective and dial in my own habits and routine on set and then compare them against your flow on set. If I would have watched this course immediately following the bootcamp it would have been cool but because I had some experience under my belt this was another game changing tool for me to develop my craft and excel in my career. Greatly valuable course! Overall, this course helped me realize what I'm doing right... and learn areas where I need to improve. But thanks to Jordan, I'm on my way!

I really felt like I was there on the shoot with everyone. There are so many pieces of valuable information within this course I couldn’t stop watching. Each module I was like, “I cannot believe he’s sharing all of this with so much compassion and genuine enthusiasm!” That’s a rare find in production. If you’re thinking about it, DO IT, no way you’ll regret it. Thank you, Jordan Brady!
