"I’ve just completed the online course which explained how to film and edit my own videos. It was a really engaging course with lots of new information in it, like the most important things to consider when setting up a shot. Also the apps that I can download to use for filming, editing, and for autocue.

I’m feeling more confident now, especially about knowing how to engage with the audience."
