Practical Filmmaking Summer Course

J
Jonathon
12/12/2012
What I would highlight: I think 90% of the stuff taught to me on the AUB summer course was totally new for me even though I have recently studied Film Making in other UK college. Got different insights of the processes of filmmaking, rather than learning about them in isolation. The tutors were truly professionals –they have acted in, produced or directed all sorts of films and TV parts. It’s very important to have people teaching who has worked in the film industry. Thumbs up!
What could be improved: No complaints.
