Josef Mancino when I first meant him I knew he was someone special. He is talented in so many ways that he really makes you scratch your head. I mean is this guy real? Maybe he's a genius robot that just so happens to be great at everything. He's created some of the most spectacular designs that I have ever seen. He was always a great friend and tutored me in areas I struggled with. We would spend so many hours after class working until I knew what the heck I was doing. It was so easy to learn when he was teaching.
I can remember one time he spent about 5 hours helping me with a project for my Director class. He was getting a bit cranky and I told him “Uh, I think you need to eat something” and he glared at me and said “Oh no, neither one of us will eat until you get this right”. Yea we were both starving but by the end of the evening I was a dang pro! I can’t remember if I bought him dinner that night or not lol. If I didn’t before then I'll say it now "he definitely deserved it". Guess what? That was not the only time he went out of his way to tutor me. He spent several hours and several days teaching me how to use Flash correctly. I struggled so much in that class and knew just the basics. Outside of class Joe showed the software to me in a completely different view. He is a flash genius and taught me so much. Joe was only a student during all of our study sessions but I’m glad now to see that he is actually teaching at IADT. I remember telling him he would make a brilliant teacher. Thank you Joe!
