“Learning on the job is not enough anymore. Technical skills and the learning processes involved in film-making are of such a high order that professional training is now a necessary norm. I used to naively imagine the crew were there solely to help me make my film. But experience quickly taught me the magical truth; each member of the crew is there making their own film, in terms of their own talents. This is what really gives that gratifying hum of harmony on a film set; pros doing what only pros can do. And that only comes through the confidence and ease that training and practice bring. It doesn’t grow on trees.”
Bill Forsyth, BAFTA-winning director/writer of Local Hero and Gregory’s Girl
“These courses give you the chance to make mistakes and correct them without the stress or pressure of having an AD standing there with a walkie asking “how much longer?”. I love being able to explain things in a way that I would want to hear them explained. Also, I don’t like the idea of insisting one way over the other. I learn as much on these workshops usually as the people attending. You never stop learning.”Stuart Bray, make-up artist on Harry Potter, Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan
