We’re very excited to say that not only was our student’s work chosen to open the showreel, we also had the largest amount of entries that made the final cut: 7 in total! It’s a fantastic achievement and showcases our students’ skills and talent.

We are extremely proud of our students’ amazing work and it’s great to see that other people appreciate their hard work too. Congratulations to everyone that was featured!
