Major cities will have universities, film schools and film festivals that all might be putting events on. If you are still struggling remember there are plenty of free tutorials online.

I am currently writing a novel, to help me improve my writing. I recently took a short course (which I found at my local university) on creative writing and I found it extremely helpful. Although you can learn everything online these days for free, a short structured course, with a teacher and classmates to give you feedback can be priceless.

So don’t knock film education, it might be what you need to level up, and doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

If you have attended any courses in the past that you would like to recommend, contact me online and I will add any courses to the list above - @amyclarkefilms
