You will need to complete an expression of interest form and agree to the following to complete the course: I agree to attend in person ALL the days as above and 2 or 3 of the zoom sessions as detailed above. I understand that though this course is Free, not attending lets others down who wanted to attend and did not get a place and the team who want to make this film. Film is team work.
