Welcome to our annual MIA teacher training week.
This year we feature our GCE Theory Day with INTO Film Introduction courses which will take you on a journey through film history covering essential Moving Image AS and A2 topics. And for teachers wishing to delve into special effects why not come along to our Post-Production Effects for Free course and give your movies that special FX magic with some 3D compositing.
All Courses will be held in Nerve Belfast Creative Learning Centre at the Ulidia Resource Centre.
As always all courses are free and offered on a first come first served basis, please book early as they tend to fill up within 1-2 days.
Each course lasts from 9.30 – 3.30.
