What participants say about NFTS Scotland Sessions:

'I am extremely pleased at the online course given by Lloret Dunn. It surpassed my expectation... The quality was excellent and the content clear, concise and enlightening. Ms. Dunn is an amazing personable instructor who brings the subject to life. Her experience and vast knowledge is appreciated. This is my second course (via NFTS Scotland) facilitated by Ms. Dunn and look forward to others she may give. Thank you to NFTS for stepping up in these trying times and finding a way to continue to help us new people in the industry.' (The Location Series with Lloret MacKenna Dunn)

'Very inspiring and informative. A good and realistic insight into the industry and a reminder of what inspires us all in the first place.' (Composing for Film and TV with Giles Lamb)

'Peter Dale's two-hour course was concise but with plenty of examples across a diverse range of programmes to illustrate his points. His knowledge and explanation of what the storytelling structure should entail, and why, has filled in the gaps I have faced in previous projects. I hope that his advice will allow me to approach future film projects with a structure in mind.' (Factual Storytelling with Peter Dale)

'Hats off to NFTS and the likes of Peter Dale for finding a way to provide these short courses (which are affordable too for the likes of me who has no income at the moment!) while we are still in lockdown'. (Factual Storytelling with Peter Dale)
