I would also love to get my hands on this kind of training. I live in BC and there is no way I can afford the flight and the time off but would be happy to buy the content. Although just a video taping of the course would be good I would prefer the 3D BUZZ style set up as a VTM myself.

The material is ready-made and simply needs recording?

I've never clearly understood why such opportunities
for video trainning material aren't made use of when
so many are pining for for it.

Work prevents me from attending this class, but I'd
buy the DVD for a fair price.
