An outstanding course that is taught by inspirational lecturers. It comprises of a comprehensive and enjoyable course that combines theoretical concepts and practical experience to meet all levels of ability. I have used all the skills I learned on this course with a JCSP English class to create short films based on poems and drama extracts. It helped improve attendance, confidence and an appreciation for poetry and drama. Both students and parents were thrilled with the results of their short films. – Dan Fahey (Teacher)
This film course gave me a broad overview of all the stages in making a short film, ranging from scriptwriting to production. The individual sessions combined classroom theory given by industry experts with practical hands-on experience in lightning & camera-work. It was amazing for me without any prior experience, to learn the skills to shoot and edit a short film with real actors during this weekend course. – Andrew Henderson (App Designer)
