“After my 5 days on Mull with Wild Island Film School, I decided to boost my filmmaking experience and do the 2-day course on the Somerset levels. I took what I learned on Mull and was able to progress and learn a lot in a short space of time. S-J has put together a brilliant plan which allowed me to make the most of the 2 days and really get to grips with camera work with wildlife, nature, landscapes and macro filming. A really interesting 2 days which boosted my confidence and knowledge of wildlife filmmaking.” Harry Nixon
