“I have been an online member of StudentFilmmakers.com for many years and recently discovered their new HD Pro Guide Magazine [produced by the same publisher], which is fantastic. The articles and interviews are a great insight for filmmakers from every level. I’m a filmmaker with a fair few films under my belt, and like everyone, I started from scratch, and I’m always discovering and learning new things. A magazine like HD Pro Guide Magazine is a way to do that. I recommend it to any filmmaker and anyone who is in the film industry.”
