What people are saying about the 2-DAY Film and High Definition Camera Courses:
I hope this short testimonial does the course justice. I would need a whole page to truly express just how much I enjoyed the course. The thing I liked the most is that Chris covered more than just how to use a camera, he talked about the ethics of the job and imparted wisdom gained from direct experience.
I had a fantastic day and I can't thank him enough for all your advice! I wasn't completely sure if cinematography was the way to go for me but having met Chris and attended the course all doubts have now been cast from my mind. I'm looking forward to starting my work experience as camera assistant with Lime Pictures, which should be in a couple of weeks.
I found the Camera Course to be most helpful and beneficial to my future career. The one-to-one training I received from Chris has given me an in depth view of the skills needed to become a cinematographer. The Camera Course was delivered in a relaxed atmosphere and I found it covered everything from using a professional camera to being a professional camera person.
The advice and knowledge I have gained from this course has been invaluable and I would recommend it to anyone.
Thank you so much Chris for everything,
All The Best,
