I took the SOA Workshop in October and, I have to say, it was one of the best experiences of my life. With that being said, I picked up my rig just a couple weeks ago and wanted to make sure I was dialed in with things, so I gave the one and only Greg Smith a call.
I have to say, 2 days of his one-on-one lessons is a game changer.
Having a veteran op like Greg there critiquing and giving advice on everything from set-life and business to, obviously, the actual operating is absolutely incredible.
Putting that into a one-on-one scenario? Get outta here!
Loved the SOA workshop, but this, for me, was an extra huge help; especially after not wearing the rig for a while as a new op.
He assessed where I was at and designed the entire two days around working on specific parts of operating. Going over drills and walk-through in different scenarios. Technique-drill-real World application. An excellent teacher for sure!
Can't recommend his service enough.
Plus, the beach is right there. ;)
