I would say the course today has exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend it to other people.

Oswyn, National Lottery

I thought the course was fantastic. I don’t use IT a huge amount and I was worried that I wouldn’t keep up but it was so easy to follow, the software is so intuitive and it was fascinating, you could make stuff really really quickly and I definitely want to learn more. I’ll be back in on the course on day 2!

Philippa, Educ8training

We learnt how to apply different shooting techniques, including interviewing contributors and using time-laps and slow-motion footage to create striking videos.

The editing was swift and easy on our mobiles.

I’d definitely recommend the course to markets, communicators and business people who want to have an impact, but don’t have the resources to use external providers
