Great Content, Poor Audio

This was my second experience listening to Michael Hauge, the first was from Pilar Alessandra's podcast 'On The Page'. That interview was enough for me to seek him out and I'm glad I did.

This speech is from one of Hauge's screenwriting classes and that is why the audio is not the greatest. Recorded in what sounds like a classroom it has an echo to it. That being said I did get used to it after awhile.

Overall the content outweighs the poor sound quality. Hauge is a great teacher and explains everything that your screenplay needs to accomplish in a clear voice.

I definitely recommend this to any aspiring screenwriters.

Excellent teacher

Michael Hauge provides a lot of information and pretty much touches upon everything. I purchased this audio book thinking maybe Michael could give some inside perspective of the industry and possibly suggest some techniques on the process but what I found was a lot more. He is a very good teacher who explains things in very easy to understand terms. The simplest way for me to grasp new concepts is through numerous examples of which Michael gives plenty of.
