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!
I recently attended a day's workshop run by Anna near Cardiff, learning how to use smartphones to make professional-looking film. I'm a marketing manager for B2B and third sector clients, responsible for content strategy and implementation to help generate sales and awareness, showcase new products and projects, and raise the profile of my clients as educators and experts in their field. Video is clearly the 'way-forward' and I believe, an essential part of any marketing strategy. Following Anna's course, I can now offer additional, practical, creative skills to integrate into my clients' content plans. Anna is a well-organised, approachable, highly professional educator, who clearly has a passion for her field, and is very happy to help others to benefit from her journalism and TV experience. She is very talented and it was a joy to spend the day with her, and pick that fantastic brain! I'd highly recommend Anna's involvement in your own video-making/editing journey.
Jules Appleby, Marketing Manager
Anna is amazing at what she does and her courses are excellent value for money. I learned so much that I know will have such a positive influence on my business. The best thing about working with Anna is her wealth of experience, she has walked the walk and she certainly can and does talk the talk. Highly recommend working with her.
