Attending the Vlog and Youtube course was a brilliant experience for me.

The participants had a varied range of interests and reasons for wanting to learn how to be successful in Vlog/Youtube and the tutor took time to understand what each student wanted to achieve.

We all made a video clips and had the benefit of detailed and comprehensive feedback from the tutor before each shoot.

The tutors went to a great deal of trouble with lighting and background to ensure that the clips we received at the end of our course were of a good standard.

Having copies of the clips and still photos made the course particularly good value in terms of time and money. I have no hesitation in recommending this course
