Sup. My name is Rando and I'm a full time freelance audio/visual composer with an edge for timelapse and hyperlapse photography. I've learned that all those fancy cool camera shots are important, but empty unless they tell a good story. After working in every habitable continent and making all kinds of films, the most rewarding part of it all is being able to share the whole process with other people. That being said, welcome to my class.
