"It was an excellent exposition of what is involved in filmmaking including the considerations and challenges of film editing. This workshop has been rated as one of the best in our 25th Global Education Conference held at the Prama Institute in July, 2015. Thank you very much for sharing the secrets and the wealth of knowledge that you possess."
~ D.S., educator and meditation teacher

"Step by step, the workshop presented an inspiring overview of Kevin's cinematic process, along with an entirely useful, logical, and down-to- earth guide to documentary filmmaking. I know now that I can do it too."
~ Jim Deerhawk - record producer and artist manager

"Kevin brings the exploration of a 'Sacred Cinema' alive with a presence that continues to inspire and motivate long after the workshop is over."
~ Karen Malik - psychotherapist, cultural liaison

"Kevin Peer is an inspired sage of cinematography. My training in his workshop prepared me for the storytelling work I was given this life to do."
~ Hope Frazier - writer, photographer, and former Miami Herald newspaper editor.

"Kevin Peer comfortably covers the key technical issues in his offhandedly sublime workshops, but it is the spiritual profundity infusing his own magnificent films that is crucial to his teaching. Even students who choose not to pursue film-making after completing a workshop will gain immensely. You cannot avoid seeing better and feeling more deeply."
~William Phelan- anthropologist and media analyst

"Kevin is a very rare teacher. The seemingly effortless craftsmanship, integrity, and compassion we love in his films is unstintingly available to each student, whatever the need or prior film experience."
~ Anna Leung- workshop leader, health educator

"I couldn't have enjoyed this workshop more - much richer and deeper than I even anticipated! You not only provided a wonderfully comprehensive overview of filmmaking but also led us into the depths of the creative process, realizing your artistic visions, living with integrity, and creating the work you love."
~ Elsa Webber- counselor, educational filmmaker

"I was deeply impressed by the range and depth of the content, your openness to all manner of student inquiries, and the provocative and full answers to practical and philosophical questions alike. I feel encouraged and empowered to make video work for me as a creative outlet for many of my concerns."
~ Gerald Fitzgerald- clergyman, retired teacher, graduate student.
