Can't remember the last time I had so much fun & felt so much love at a Q & A. Spending time with fellow enthusiasts who love film & film making was inspiring & uplifting - Shooting People is an incredible, vital organisation for all film makers and I'm so grateful I got to be part of it. Thank you Cath & Shooting People team!
