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!
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 girls had a lot of fun making their music videos and we all loved watching the final result. The tutor Nathan was great, he had lots of patience and stayed very calm. I thought the remote course was also explained very well.
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!
