We have delivered several COVID secure filmmaking courses online and in person over the last year and can adapt our courses to any National or local restrictions. All filmmaking activities are structured to COVID secure industry guidance. Participants will connect online using Zoom - it will be useful to have an internet connection and device that you can connect to the internet with such as a laptop, tablet or smartphone and if needed, we will work with you to resolve any gaps in home connectivity you may have, please just let us know.
how much does it cost?
The course is free to attend but there is a £15 fee for a Kit Bundle for the animation day which has all the model making materials you will need.
