This is a great series. It takes you from the very beginning and shows you all you need to jump in and produce full fledged videos, movies, etc. Very thorough, and everything is made plain so that even people a little slow to grasp things (like me) can get it. What a blessing - and for free! What more could you ask? I recently made the shift from PowerDirector to Adobe Premiere Pro, and this series has made the transition a whole lot easier than it otherwise would have been! Thanks so much!
