I'm amazed these videos haven't taken off, they're really well done. Production, acting, editing, and well written as well!

The second part of Episode 9 is really really sad. "Thank you for talking to me, sir."

I just booked for the masterclass to see if it will help me with a book trailer I am working on. I hadn't heard about the class. Thank goodness we have you in Adelaide, Henry, or we would never hear about these things.
