  1. Great classes, Joe McNally Rocks! I would like to know which model of smoke machine he used in the shoot. As it is a great SFX tool I am considering buying one, but with any investment, I am concerned about getting a quality product. I am sure Joe or his team knows from experience what is good and what is not so good. Thanks in advance, Michael Sloan.

  2. Amazing opportunity to hear the thought process that Joe uses to work his magic and see how respectful he is in working with his subject. Beautiful work! Thank you for sharing your expertise.
