I truly enjoyed all the sessions with Sharon. The world of production seemed unattainable or foreign before taking this course. But learning the essentials from Sharon has opened a window for me into the possibilities of what I can do through short films. Thank you for emboldening me with confidence that I can start learning
I feel conﬁdent in producing a short ﬁlm with a partner or small team of collaborators. The courses were great. The speakers and webinar leaders were well versed in their craft and mission. They were very knowledgeable and willing to offer additional services and support.
The sessions while being informative were very clear. Though everything taught was completely new to me, I could fully understand the complexities broken down simply.
I really enjoyed the sessions. Really appreciate Sharon for answering all the queries and questions. The classes were really informative and Sharon has set an example for all the women out there to pursue filmmaking. So glad she decided to share her experience and learnings with all the ladies.
Sharon was an amazing teacher and she went through in detail on the different classes held on script writing, camera technicalities and video editing. Being completely new to film production, I have learnt a lot now from Sharon’s class. Going through examples from her own short films was helpful to interpret the concept of film making and the topic/ideas of her short films were inspiring as well.
