Some may think that you can go untrained into fishing. The best advice I would give people considering fishing as a profession is to get training. Fishing is an all encompassing career - when you need to go fishing, the rest of your life goes on hold unfortunately. It is very unpredictabe because you could be fishing non stop for three weeks and tied up for two.

Description...
This one year course is taught using a range of digital video cameras and Apple Mac computers. Students are taught a range of skills including scripting, storyboarding, camera skills and editing skills etc.

There is one group project in the whole course. Outside of this, students work on individual projects in which they are encouraged to produce videos on topics of interest to themselves, provided it fits within the given brief. The majority of this course is practical rather than theory based, which allows students to produce varied and substantial portfolios.
