Jun 9, 2022

Alex Knell is an actor, filmmaker and an in-demand top writer/designer of treatments for commercial directors. Alex schools me on how to best work with a treatment artist to really hone the pitch and win the job. I've posted her reel at or click.

My Directing Programs:
I've been adding more content to Commercial Directing Shadow - behind the scenes and all things Nebraska Corn to supplement the Toyota shoot. This is a unique online course that puts you right by my side, like BTS on steroids. I explain what I'm doing and why, you download the scripts and my boards, watch my detailed video treatment and even watch 360 footage! Scripts,  shooting boards, script notes and the final spots. But wait there's more - one lucky & worthy commercial director will be invited to shadow me in prep and on set, in real life, on a real job. Sign up now. Commercial Directing Shadow comes with a free/optional consultation call when you're done. Masterclass and Bootcamp alumni hit me up for the discount.
Director's Treatments Unmasked is a recorded live Zoom course complete with my deck and over 8 treatments you download and steal from.
