"No matter how far one has to travel, this seminar is a must for anyone interested in the filmmaking process. I’ve been to several screenwriter seminars – David Freeman's Beyond Structure Workshop and Robert McKee’s Story to name a few – but Guy Magar’s Action/Cut Filmmaking is the first one that had everyone networking literally from the first minute. I was amazed by how much Guy packed into just two days, but equally impressed by how accessible he is and how sincere about passing on his considerable knowledge to this lucky group of aspiring filmmakers."  Ray Peterson - Filmmaker (Connecticut)

 

"Guy Magar is the most knowledgeable director in indie filmmaking I know...his passion for the film 
craft is unequalled...his seminar is one of a kind. Jeanne Van Cott (Producer/UPM/Director)

 

"Thought you'd want to know an Action/Cut Graduate's success story. My first feature film HARD SCRAMBLED starring 
Kurtwood Smith won "Best Feature Drama" at the Garden State Film Festival and we recently premiered at the Cinequest 
Film Festival in San Jose, and also screened at the Phoenix and San Fernando Valley Film Festivals. Thank you, Guy!"
David Scott Hay, Director/Writer (Chicago)

"Since taking Action/Cut in Chicago, I've become a candidate for the DGA/ABC-TV Directing Fellowship, am being considered for my first DGA gig, and shot and edited my first music video. Guy, I can't thank you enough for providing a map of moviemaking anyone can read and everyone can follow." Leslie Chain, Filmmaker (IL)

"Happy to recommend your seminar which I took in San Fran, and I also bought the DVD home course. So few directors bring their experiences to the novices hungry for information that can help get their start, or improve their skills. You do! Your class was practical and exciting. Thank you for treating your students seriously in our pursuit of this hyper-competitive world of entertainment." Eric Sullivan, Filmmaker (CA)
