and a few words from our recent graduates...

"The instructors not only know what they’re teaching but they know how to teach. The support staff was very helpful and the owner of the school is serious about helping people find jobs after graduating.
Each of us had individual workstations and we didn’t just learn the programs - there were film viewings, readings and discussions on the aesthetics of editing, which was something else I was looking for in an editing class. All around I’d say it was definitely worth it."
-Dave Oates, Jan 2009 Graduate

"I just wanted to write you and say thanks for the wonderful experience at MEWShop.  I wish it never had to end.  The instructors there are AWESOME and I am so happy that I made the decision to take the class with you guys.  Really thorough and professional and I was very satisfied."
- Andreas Burgos, Jan 2009 Graduate
