Endorsements of participants of the Paul Haggis Seminar:
Davide Marengo (Director/writer, Boris, Sirene, The Hunter)
"It was very inspirational for me. Paul Haggis is very clear, all savvy in what he teaches. I saw that it was not only motivating for people who are in the business for years, but a good school for those who want to start their career."
Arend Remmers (Writer, Dogs of Berlin, Unsere Zeit ist jetzt, Snowflake)
"In my mind the best teachers are people who don´t teach but share their actual working experience. That said Paul Haggis didn´t feel like a teacher, but like a mentor, I learned a great deal, and already put some advice to goo use. There is nothing more inspiring and motivating than being in the same room with a master of his craft. I will do his class again and highly recommend it."
