Editor reviews

So I have never seen Andrew Jenks show, but when I received Andrew Jenks: My Adventures as a Young Filmmaker in the mail I was intrigued. The cover drew me in and the quote on the back was interesting.

Andrew Jenks's book was innovative and refreshing. I loved the unique way the book was put together. There was a variation of text size and color, along with a lot of pictures. It was fun to read since it was constantly being mixed up.

I think Andrew Jenks had a really neat story to tell. I love the passion for film that comes through in his writing and how he shares his not as successful start. It is very inspirational.
