"Simon was enthusiastic and very knowledgable about after effects, he listened where we were coming from with the software and tailored the tuition to ensure that all the areas we were interested in were covered, and kept us engaged in what we were doing. He offered great support and was more than happy to help. I'm actually dissapointed he won't be my instructor on the continuation of the course in July! I was also very curious to see how the course would work over zoom - and was plesantly surprised at how well it worked, and would definately consider taking further courses in this way."

"Given that it was all done through Zoom, it went remarkably well. Simon was a lovely guy, super approachable and never made anyone feel silly for the questions asked. Even on the first day when I didn't have access to a mic, he still gave time to read my questions in the chat which was much appreciated. His passion for what he does also showed, it encouraged me to work harder which was nice. It showed he cared about it"

"Craig was a great tutor to work with on this course. If there was anything we didn't understand he was happy to pause the tutorial and assist both of us to get back on track. As we fully understood a lot of adobe software and shortcut keys anyway, Craig adapted the course to our skills and experience which made this course a lot more tailored. Amazing guy and full of knowledge, any questions were answered in full straight away. Would love to have Craig as a tutor next time around as he got on with the team here so well."

"Had a really informative two day course. Mike is an excellent teacher, he's thorough, patient and also makes you feel at ease and comfortable. He covered a wide range over the two day course and was super helpful showing a few extra bits here and there. Had a really good experience, feel confident to use the program post this course and will consider taking up the advanced course. Overall really satisfied with the course, had a great time, learnt a lot and wasn't made to feel small for my lack of knowledge. "
