The fact is that the real team are the hundreds of teachers and lecturers, the many dozens of film and media experts and award winning creatives and the unnamed volunteers who have all given up their time to make this project possible. The biggest ideas come from the smallest of collective outlooks. But when shared amongst the UK's 288,000 leaners, it becomes a revolution.
 

Spanning five years of tireless expertise and dedication, totally more than ten thousand man hours of Hi Definition filming, editing, recruitment, persuasion, passion, writing and collaboration, too many people to name individually have come together to find a smart way to deeply enrich how young people and new entrants to film and media production can learn from the current generation of industry creatives.
