Participant Feedback

“ I walked into the room not having a clue how to put together a video and by the end of the weekend felt I had a grasp on a really useful new skill. We’ve made a couple of videos for our organisation and are already starting to see how much difference its making to our comms. Doing the program through the Environmental Film Festival meant we got the chance to meet some amazing young change makers and we’re looking forward to see what all the other participants have been up to”

– Sophie Lamond, Fair Food Challenge

“What a fantastic workshop that allowed for optimal practical and theory application of video creating, which for a complete beginner was perfect. Loved the fact that at the end of the course I could and did make a video!”

– Participant, Sydney 2-Day Intensive
