"I choose Screen Academy Scotland as a place where I could develop my skills further. As one of only 3 Film Academies in the UK, Screen Academy offered links to the industry, mentoring programmes, regular masterclasses with industry professionals, industry standard equipment and excellent professional development tutors. SAS equipped with me direct skills gained while creating our short films throughout the year. These skills are now being used on a daily basis in my new role at Icon Films"
