I love a video tutorial, my hours engrossed in my Digital Tutors subscription testify to that, but seeing talented people actually going about their craft is a wonderful new window into the complexity of our creative tools and how to use them effectively.

It is certainly very cool seeing actual production workflows in action at the speed it really takes!
