Young Film Academy provided my sons with an excellent week of education and fun. Their short film really surprised us all with its excellent artistic and technical merit – their imaginations have been sparked. Thank you and thank you!
The best birthday party our son has ever had! Brilliantly organised, beautifully run, incredibly exciting, wonderfully instructive and immaculately put together. The YFA team really know how to make films and inspire children. An amazing day!
Young Film Academy’s combination of structured activities, technical expertise and infectious enthusiasm made for a great experience for the young participants, as well as inspiring the host venue to offer similar projects in the future.
Young Film Academy engaged incredibly well with our daughter and her friends who all had a brilliant time pretending to be popstars! They kept the kids’ focus and energy levels throughout and the pop promo came out really well too. We were thoroughly impressed by YFA’s positivity and professionalism.
A unique, fun and challenging workshop. Not only did the girls develop a wide range of film making skills, they developed their communication and teamwork. A fantastic day that was throughly enjoyed by all.
“The One Day Film School was an outstanding day; the tutors were passionate and engaging and the activities were well paced. The students learned a variety of film making techniques, but also, and equally importantly, they developed their soft skills that are so vital to young people today. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the YFA and will certainly aim to work with them again.”
Young Film Academy’s expertise and facilitation played a crucial part in our success with the Tate Movie Project production workshops, bringing a valued creativity and flair along with a super rapport with schools and families.
We could not have asked for a better service from young Film Academy. From start to finish every member of their team went above and beyond to accommodate our requirements. I would recommend YFA not just to any other educational establishment, but to any group at all.
The YFA team are the best film workshop group we have ever asked to the Hay Festival. They are professional, easy-going and brilliantly inspirational with the kids. We’ve had them back for six years now, and they always sell out.
Young Film Academy courses are excellent for young people. They get a taste of the craft of filmmaking, in all departments and I was astonished by the speed at which they learned.
The skills that the students learn during the day are also used for later assignments within the curriculum. Students are easily able to apply these techniques and create films to support class texts or topics. In addition, the teachers use the skills that they learn through observation in other classes, including IB A1
This was an amazing day which the students really enjoyed. They had the chance to work together and integrate as a group and produced great films at the end, putting all they had learned into practice.
Special thanks to Craig, Dan and Tina for co-ordinating a terrific party, where the kids were able to let rip their imagination and catch it on camera. The kids were fascinated learning about lines of action, the 180 degree rule, reverse shots and all sorts. The whole day was loads of fun and you have inspired the next generation of film-makers!
We had a great screening and look forward to sharing the videos with the other parents now.
During the day, time management, team work and reflective creativity were all addressed to great effect, tremendous educational benefits in terms of personal learning and thinking skills
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the whole team for making last weeks course so enjoyable for my daughter. She was thrilled to be part of it and is now fired up even more to get going with her own film making.
