    From the 9min mark….oh, how I can relate!

    It’s great to hear this point of view…and all those that followed. Great podcast.

    Thank you gentlemen!

    Agreed. Totally mind blowing. I would hire John any day!
    I hope cruise ships will sail again!

    This was a very helpful podcast, a bit of a surprise as I am far away from his industry — cruise ship shows. But some of us find the film scoring process and tech requirements to be daunting, and it was good to hear from someone who takes a different approach and is wildly successful with it. Great to hear his tips and favorite features. Great interview.
