Taster courses. These adult leisure courses are suitable for complete beginners in digital video, photo editing and animation. They are run at an easy pace and require no prior skills.
(All Level 2 courses and ‘Introduction to Screenwriting’ (in Level 3) are also suitable for beginners but often have additional entry requirements – see course details).

Suitable as follow on courses from Level 1 tasters or can be taken as first courses. They tend to be longer and are aimed at those with no previous experience of filmmaking.
