“Screen Education Edinburgh teaches you everything you need to know about filmmaking. Every course I have been on at SEE I have learned how to use their equipment better as well as developing myself as an all round filmmaker.  I have benefited so much from being involved with SEE and they always push you to go that extra mile after their courses. You make friends for life that you will constantly make films with learning off each other as you go.”

“When I was 14 if someone had told me where I would be now with the career path I am following I wouldn’t have believed them. I didn’t know that film was an option for me, it was just in Hollywood and for a certain type of people. Through Screen Ed I made my own short films and worked my way up to bigger productions and because of Screen Ed I now know that I want to spend my life involved in filmmaking.”
