217 / 5000 Resultados de tradução I admire Aaron's work, but this workshop left something to be desired. And what was that long minute to edit a flare? They could have cut that part in the edit. I found everything very superficial. I expected more... :/

Awesome Automotive Class

I loved all of the information that was presented in this course. The information about spec work and pitching was especially useful for me. Plus, the step by step on how to shoot cars and what companies looked for and expected was well worth the price.
