I have always had an interest in design and video and this course offers both. I had seen similar courses in other colleges, but this one was a lot more practical and involved hands on learning.  The best thing about it is the variety; there are enough subjects covered in this course so that anybody who comes will find something that suits them. It will allow you to explore how you create and what works best for you, to help you learn more about yourself and how you work best when creating content.
