What they’re saying?
Just wanted to drop a quick e-mail to say how brilliant I found the Breaking into Film class. I watched the whole thing on Google Hangout (great idea, saved me the evening dash to London) and made so many notes. Really beneficial to my ‘muddle’ towards filmmaking, definitely took a lot away from it.
