About the course

16-25? Out of work? Out of school? Passionate about gaming and want to learn the ins and outs of graphics, sound, narrative and mechanics? 

Come join us in a relaxed course, where you can boost your skills and express your creativity for free.

No programming experience needed! 

Over the 4 weeks you will be working with Vince - the producer of film, music, comics, animations, games and founder of South Blessed and Crown Roots.

You'll learn about the complete process involved in making computer games and how storytelling is different in this medium. 

I loved the course, it's been really fun. I've learnt a lot, met new people and got to work with great professionals. The group was well organised and everyone was supportive. I wanted to improve my confidence by taking part and this experience has done just that. I now know I can do so much more than I ever thought would be possible
