What people say about the training:

"The training Peg offered was great - we thought through what we wanted to achieve through making short films, and then we had a very hands-on couple of hours working out how to do short films that we could share on social media.  

We’re now ready to start making and editing short films to get the word out about what we’re doing at Empty Homes Doctor."

Empty Homes Doctor, Leeds

"It was a pleasure to work with Peg on our recent video training session. Creative, talented and personable, she really understood our brief, helping the team to gain an insight into how to capture the best video footage to maximise our engagement on social media. We were impressed with range of topics we covered during the 3 hour session from filming on your phone, editing to interview hints and tips.

​The team thoroughly enjoyed the training and now feel confident and excited to start making our own films. We look forward to working with Peg again on future projects.
