“Mastering Time is a 3 part course I developed to deliver a comprehensive college level course at a fraction of the cost. In this first part of the series I share a wealth of ideas to help you understand time, manipulate it, bend it, break it up and exploit its relative nature. I go over working with click, working without click, time syncing, feel and rate change.” – Matt Garstka
