pretty comprehensive but have a good idea what you want to do and bring scripts as no time to work it out in class.

Before you do the course essential viewing homework should include the 1990 film Pump Up the Volume with Christian Slater which appears to be the inspiration for all podcasts and blogs, the movie Good Morning Vietnam

A well designed and delivered course. After the first class you could go away with necessary skills, but they develop swiftly over the two. I feel more knowledgeable and skilful because of this course.
