I've seen a lot of movies, but it wasn't until I took Eric's class that I fully appreciated the artistry involved in making films. Each class was a discovery in the exacting arts of film, sound and music editing that open up a new world for me, so much so that each film I watched in the course of the class emerged into something quite magical and absorbing. Eric's profound knowledge of film, his expertise as an accomplished film editor, and his pure passion for filmmaking, made this one of the best classes I've taken in any subject.

Eric has changed the way I watch movies, and doubled my enjoyment of them. The films he showed in class were perfect: a couple I'd meant to watch but never had, a couple I'd seen and liked (but now love), and a few I would never, ever have chosen but enjoyed immensely. He creates an informal atmosphere that invites questions and discussion, and while he's incredibly knowledgeable, he's unpretentious, open to new interpretations, and seems to love teaching. I recommend his class wholeheartedly.
