What Our Students Say:

"LOVED IT! Alwyn made it fun, answered my (no doubt annoying!)questions before moving on. Explained clearly, was understandable &so excited now to play with what I can do."
Ms Tracie W - Prahran

"We thought it was a terrific course. Very energising & motivating.We loved the fact that we could both come to use our new camera &the second person come for $49. This way we could both use it whenwe travel & no-one has a monopoly on the camera. (We came back toMichaels because we bought our first video camera in 2000 and attendedan introductory video course. It's a long time between courses but wefound good price and fantastic service at the time: we have remembered)."

Ms. Victoria Q - Carlton North

"Excellent. Alwyn was clear, prepared, a joy. Skipped Part 1 and worrieda little about being behind, but Alwyn explained so clearly I was righton top of things. Still may go back and do Part 1 because because Ienjoyed Part 2 - memory refreshment never hurts!"
