Under the tuition of our award-winning filmmakers via Zoom, students on the Four Day Film School will join us to get creative and embark on a whistle-stop tour of film’s origins and history. They will learn about screen acting, writing, editing, and camera work using whatever equipment the student has available – before they get stuck in and do it for themselves. Everyone has a chance to develop their own role and no one escapes without saying “ACTION!”
This live course is packed with practical activities and will teach students to use their own equipment like a pro from the comfort of their own home! Guided by our expert tutors after four action-packed days, all students will have completed their own short films, edited with music, sound design and titles.
Remote course pricing is on a per group basis. Min-Max group size for this course is 1-4 students. The number of students in your group does not affect the price.
Courses run from 10am (GMT +1 ) until 5pm with a 1 hour lunch break at 1pm.

Max and Jake loved the remote course! Max loved it and he learned so much. He is truly passionate about filmmaking and to be able to share what he’s learned so far, have his films professionally critiqued but also to develop his skills was just fantastic – even when it came to sorting critical IT issues 🙂
Thanks so very much to Dan and the team. The boys loved it.
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!
Dear YFA team, Thank you so much for turning this difficult time into such a positive experience. I was so worried about what to do with the kids when their school closed and they were stuck at home, but over the last four days they’ve had an incredible time learning new skills and were really engaged with the whole filmmaking process. Knowing that we could let them get on with it by themselves was a huge relief. The movie they produced was brilliantly creative (not sure about my cameo though…!) They’re determined to do a music video next, so we will be in touch very soon. Thanks again!
Jake said it was he best course he has ever done and he is very picky and critical about what he does and doesn’t like. He loved every day!
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.
Milo had a wonderful time and declared the Four-Day Film School ‘awesome’. He really enjoyed every aspect of it from scripting and storyboarding, to performing and editing. The tutors were excellent and the totally hands-on have-a go-approach was not only fun but very effective
I have to tell you that Serena had the BEST time at the course. She was so enthused by it all, and really loved the people and the entire experience. PLEASE let us know when your next London based film camps/courses are!
