    Quote from student in the class.
    "The most important thing is the culture of pictures.

    In the Journalism department we are used to dealing with written media.

    so the priority now is to learn how to use pictures

    This is the best thing I learned how to film.

    I learned new techniques that made me
    want to get a camera and learn more about the video editing software."

    — Wessam Hendy, Faculty of Mass Communication, Cairo University
