First off he has an exceptional eye. He sees his students and their work with unbelievable clarity. He sees their strengths, weakness, successes, failures, where and when they need to be pushed, and the challenges that suit the growth they need to achieve. His insights into the minutia of their work is inspiring. There have been endless times in working with John, in class, that he has given me a single, well phrased, note, between takes, that has allowed me to take a scene and my work to unexpected places.
