Testimonials

“After taking redundancy in my early 40s, I was at a loss as to what direction to take in my working life. Thanks to the skills, coaching and direction I gained from participating on the Film Production course, I’ve been able to embark on a new and exciting career as a freelance videographer and photographer. Signing up for the Film Production course has been nothing short of transformative for me and my career!”

Mark Hethington 

“Studying on this Creative Media and Film Production course at Glenealy IT Centre was a brilliant experience. It helped me gain confidence and learn new skills. A couple of months after the course ended, thanks to a recommendation and encouragement from the tutors, I was offered a contract in the film industry – so it is not surprising that I highly recommend it !!! “
