Keith really did a phenomenal job, and I'm not just saying that. I feel as though I've seriously increased my skill level in Houdini Destruction work after taking his course.
Amazing instructor. Very knowledgeable about the content, learned more during this class then I have in my entire college career.
Keith Kamholz gave really excellent feedback and promptly as well. He also answered email questions very quickly and with really detailed replies.

He worked hard to push us to simplify very complex tasks and encouraged us to take simple steps each time to build magical stuff. I also admired his modesty & wellness for helping and sharing some of his coolest & production proven techniques, which you wouldn't be able to find elsewhere.
Very useful insights and tips about his work. Kind Person. Great course!
