Orion Sheppard rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the fast paced classes with industry professionals teaching us how to work in a film studio. The school really focuses on helping students get to know one another so that we have connections in the future. When taking classes some of them feel repetitive and I feel that we could take that opportunity to learn new things.
