What I would highlight: I loved working with performers and and other production students on projects, productions and short films. The tutors were very knowledgeable and supportive, I liked that they had experience in the media industry.
What could be improved: Production Arts students often felt there was a lot of favouritism to the performance students, we only had 1 studio room between 3 classes of between 6 to 21 student we would have to share the room and even when there was not enough mirrors for 1 class alone. this compared to over 10 performance studios.
Would you recommend this course?: Yes
