Nick's lectures were amazing. He was great at explaining his thought process was while working through multiple iterations. His Q&A sessions were fantastic; he was great at answering everyone's questions and was very generous with sharing his knowledge.
Nick is a fabulous instructor and he explained each and every thing in depth. He always encouraged us to do research and for us to develop our own styles rather then depend upon the instructor's weekly examples or brushes. I really enjoyed learning with Nick. I recommend this course for anyone who wants to develop the skills in production designing.
