Our tutors regularly work in the TV and Film industry and you will be learning from them in the friendly, informal atmosphere of our practical, hands-on training workshops.

All our class demonstrations are projected onto an HD screen, allowing every student to have a close-up view of the action. Students are encouraged to practice all the new techniques they learn with our tutors, who will then view & assess their finished work on an HD screen under studio lighting conditions. Our tutors will then provide constructive feedback on each completed task to help students learn and improve their skills.
