Peter John Ross, creator of Cinestudy

I have had to go virtual for my intro to field video class right before we started work on their short film project. I am going to use some of your editing exercises, scripts, and download footage to provide my students material to edit to partially make up for not getting to shoot their films. The Animatics/Animating Storyboards exercise is especially useful as an introductory exercise before they do their final project which includes voice performances from the actors we were to work with. This will give them an idea how to work with drawings or inanimate objects for their visuals.California_State_University_Fresno

Thank you Cinestudy and Peter John Ross for providing this tremendous resource. This will help me to salvage the learning experience for my students during the Covid-19 crisis.”

Cinestudy has been an invaluable addition to my class, it’s great to see what students do with the interactive projects. I’ve been looking at your content for years and think it’s a harvard extensionwonderful tool for students. I am teaching an introductory course at the Harvard Extension School and use your content in my class.

I’m an adjunct instructor of editing at Pellissippi State Community College who had toPell-logo-2 convert the class to an online-only format after midterms. Your raw footage helped me demonstrate important concepts and gave my students realistic material to work with. Thank you so much!”
