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 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!

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!
