Dear Friends:

Something good !!!
A few years ago I went to Orlando in a vacation trip, and stopped at the DaveSchool to say hello.
Ron Thornton was there, and let me meet him, talk to him for a few minutes.
I was really excited, as I love his work.
Thank you Ron !!!

I still have all his VHS tapes. All still relevant, as far as I'm concerned. He wasn't happy with just being being awesome and miles ahead of anyone else in TV VFX. He also shared his state of the art techniques in great detail and with a great teaching style at a time when there were almost no learning opportunities.
