COMMENTS & REVIEWS
• "I am impressed with Jerry Dayís ability to pack so much useful information into a twenty minute package. His direct, no-nonsense style leads the neophyte movie maker on a fascinating journey on the nature of light and how to control it to bring out the most emotional value in any scene. What I like most is that he did not talk down or talk over the heads of the viewers. His fast-paced style forces the audience to pay attention so they can absorb all of the tips, tricks, and applications. His directness speaks to his believability and gives authority to the smallest detail."
- Tony Luna, Instructor, Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA
• "I purchased your Light Like A Pro video and I love it. I am in the
process of starting up my own company and have not been able to find good books
etc that could help me understand the concept of lighting. Your video is outstanding...I
wanted to see more of your knowledge on lighting." - Linda R Schexnayder,
Photographer, Antioch CA
• "Light Like A Pro is beautifully produced, superbly narrated and very
inspiring. This is no nonsense to the point instruction and techniques that
no one should be without in order to make their visions the best they can be.
Keep up the great work!" - Steve Noble, Animax Design Group, Victoria,
