  • Find out how to use your tools to get the best results.
  • Professional behaviour and on set etiquette are essential when working on set, find out the do's and dont's.
  • Health and Safety is important for an area of filmmaking, find out why and what you need to be aware of.
  • Look at how to research your project and discuss continuity.
  • Practice, practice, practice! Use your kit to work the magic of special effects.
