"I attended an open day at Ravensbourne and was blown away at the calibre of the editing and post-production facilities. More importantly, I was impressed with what the course offered, what it covered, and how it gave you a taste of everything including sound and audio, editing and post, scriptwriting, production management, cinematography and more."—Thomas Bryan , Digital Film Production BA (Hons) graduate
