    Good Course but inadequate space for submitting practical

    Enjoyed the course, I’m not a beginner and have experience in SFX makeup. I did this course along with the beginner course as a bit of a refresher and id recommend it for someone who’s starting out in SFX (do the beginners course first and then move on to this).
