"I had the pleasure of giving a 2 hour filmmaking webinar to members of the Northern California Filmmaker's Coalition this year. The live event was very well organized and I appreciated the efforts made to make sure my webinar, "The Essentials of Directing" was a great success. The NCFC is a wonderful organization that helps local Indie filmmakers and I support what they are doing in the Sacramento Film Community and look forward to their future projects."
