It all depends on what you're expecting. If you're expecting a "how to" class with the Hans Zimmer Masterclass, then you'll be disappointed. He doesn't go into a lot of technical stuff about software, working with video, timing the music or tell you how to get that big brass sound and all that sort of thing. But, what he DOES do is provide a way of approaching scoring film (or any media for that matter). Its all about the story, he said, and everything he did really revolved around that key idea. He discussed how to work with the directors, what things to think about, what to look for in the film and lots of examples from some of his own work. He is inspiring to listen to and I learned a lot about how to approach scoring. There is a workbook that accompanies the course that provide helpful notes and outlines of all the discussions with some questions for further thought and research.

More than worth the $90 price and the 9-10 hours or so it takes to watch all the videos. I took time with it. I joined at the beginning, so was able to get in on the live webcast they had with Hans. That was a fascinating 90 minutes.

Hope that helps.

I absolutely hate intrusive web ads. This Zimmer thing pops up a few months back and I gave it 5 seconds before closing the ad, basically because I then realize who it is! 90 seconds later I'm dropping the Preorder in my cart as fast as I can, lol. To repeat several others, WELL worth the $90. Just being in the "class", even if you're well accomplished, is like having this great conversation with like minds... I will continue to go back through it several times every so often. For a noob like me it's a gold mine, and I dare say if you've hit writer's block, this could help break it. Very inspiring class.
