“Studying my bachelors degree at NCD was an amazing decision that has greatly expanded my knowledge of media at a professional level, thanks to the ongoing support from my tutors. Filming and producing ‘No Means Nothing’ has been a positive challenge. Despite setbacks due to Covid-19, James, Rebecca and I have been able to push through to make a short film we are all proud to have worked on. It feels amazing that our hard work is being recognised.”
Scott is currently working on promotional videos for clients, and documentaries for production companies. He continued:
“In between filming for clients and production companies, I will also be filming shorts for myself and other productions this year.”
