"My tutor was incredible since he brought so much real life experience, but was also very down to earth. Career wise, having CMS on my resume & sharing my work from the course online has opened many doors for me. Employers and people in the industry recognise the quality of the education I received."

"Shelley's most recent credits include Game of Thrones, Outlander and Dracula Untold - "I did my first CMS course in SFX makeup as a trainee just starting out in the industry. The course was brilliant, so hands-on compared to other courses. These courses helped me progress in my career with confidence in each area, and I learnt skills I use every day in my job. The courses are really well planned, insightful, hands-on and the tutors have time for everyone."

"I found the course very helpful and hands-on which helped me a lot as I'm a visual learner, plus learning in a foreign language can be challenging sometimes. I had the great opportunity of learning from some of the best tutors who boosted my knowledge and skills that today I can proudly say I had great opportunities in leading and designing makeup for film. This wouldn't have happened without CMS."
