  3. I was hoping to apply for the forthcoming film course, as the METRO advrtisement published the closing date was the 8th September 2018, whereas it states 6th here.
    I was hoping to gain the skills offered, to capture a minute by minute 1st hand view of my intended walk to London, in order to raise awareness of depression, mental heath, homelessness and the general plight of the underdog.
    Could you please keep me informed of your future courses
