“ Nick did a great job of breaking down these subjects into very clear and understandable examples. The presentations were easy to follow and, as a result, I had the time and motivation to go a little bit beyond the lesson and experiment with all of the various nodes and techniques ”
“ The course left me with an overall impression of how Nuke thinks and how to keep it happy. I've already seen great improvements in my own projects because of Nuke and Nick's course. ”
