"Life-changing. Seb gave me the confidence to make my film, and the motivation to keep going. The modules being in bite-size chunks means I can dip in and out alongside my full-time job."

Henry Donald

“More detail than my film degree, summed up better, taught in a more engaging way, for a fraction of the cost. The story section gave me so many light bulb moments of things I hadn't grasped at uni."

Erin Wallace

"Learning from Seb's experience and feedback is worth more than any price tag. I can relate it to my work, take on more responsibility, and grow in an industry I'm truly passionate about."
