Kelli made the material accessible and had a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with us. His sense of humor kept things light and fun. I took the class to get the lay of the land, so to speak, on creating videos - especially editing - and that is exactly what I got. It would be great to see a level II class offered for people who want to learn more advanced techniques and who already have a basic understanding of editing.

Kelli was amazing. He had the patience of a saint. Folks in the class had tons of photography experience and one of us, (me) needed help turning the iPhone on. He met all of us where we were at and everyone seemed to enjoy the process.

Kelli shared a lot of knowledge & helpful hints. I’d heard his class was very good and was not disappointed!

Kelli has a great sense of humor and obviously loves what he's doing. He was extremely patient and helpful to all the members of the class.
