"I thought the course was well organised and structured. However, what most impressed my was Neil - he is clearly incredibly knowledgeable and a great animator, but he was also so patient and so good at explaining everything. The pace and tone of the course was spot on and he managed to bring everyone on the course with him at all stages. He was pretty unflappable and just generally really nice . His passion was evident and that really helped me learn and stay with the course."
