Owen Davis
Teaches: Content Creation for Social Media, 2D Animation and Podcast

My name is Owen and I’ve been working in the creative industries as a content creator and Visual Effects artist for short films, documentaries and YouTube videos for over 7 years. I’m currently producing social media videos and podcasts for a number of charities. A tutor on the Apprenticeships and AEB courses, I enjoy teaching and the opportunity to work with students to develop their creative ideas.

I just finished the Digital Marketing Course. Our lecturer, Matt, was really clear when explaining the topics and very patient too. You can definitely tell that he is dedicated and passionate to the field. Great experience, suggested to whoever wants to increase his knowledge about the field. It is quite hard to find other free courses that give the same services.

I have just finished digital marketing course and had Matt as a tutor. In a few months time I learned way more than at university. Matt is an amazing tutor, always ready to spend some extra time to explain you the topic once again if you did not understand it completely. I couldn't be happier that I found this course online. Thank you so much for everything!

I have completed my 2D Animation Course with BCE this month. I adapt such a great amount of knowledge with Owen - my tutor. The information is introduced in a simple manner, and he'd generally answer my inquiry and help with any difficult that happens with my creation. I will recommend it to anybody!

Joanna Wojcik

Loved the teachers I’ve worked with and the courses are extremely accessible for new learners. A very supportive environment and there's a lot of useful tools they teach you how to use to better any aspiring professional. Special shout out to Matt on the marketing course, very helpful and supportive.

Oscar Clarke

The courses I've completed here have been more useful then University in developing practical and technical skills in regard to video and content production. The tutor are very friendly, hands on and dedicated to help out on any of the projects I've taken part in. Courses were also free which was incredible!!!

George Cole

I took a course in Content Production for Social Media, and I am so thankful to BCE and Owen for this. I always wanted to produce short films and now I have basics to do so. I learned a lot about pre production, production and post production, lighting, colour and other elements you should be mindful of... Owen was extremely supportive all the way, and the environment was friendly and safe.
