STUDY FILMMAKING OR ACTING

Students on YFA Summer Camp will divide into 2 crews: FILMMAKING CREW (for aspiring filmmakers) & ACTING CREW (for aspiring actors). Students choose which Crew they wish to join for the duration of their camp.

Each Crew will develop specialised skills in their own disciplines though practical exercises, workshops and masterclasses with film industry professionals. And because we passionately believe that the best way to learn to is get out there and DO it, the Filmmaking and Acting Crews will then combine in teams to work together for the production of the movies.

Each week of YFA Summer Camp culminates in a Premiere Screening of all the completed movies for friends and family in the onsite cinema. There’ll be a packed house, behind-the- scenes special features telling the real story of how that movie got made, and we’re guessing some blooper-reels too. (Subject to COVID restrictions, screenings may be for students only).

SUMMER CAMP’S CINEMATIC HOME

The Residential Filmmaking and Screen Acting Summer Camp is held at Culford School (2-hours from central London) one of the UK’s leading boarding schools, just 2 hours from central London.

It’s the perfect movie location to shoot an action, drama, horror, science-fiction, period drama and more! Your only limit is your imagination.

Accomodation will be split into two gendered blocks with communal bathrooms, with the majority of rooms being twin rooms and a few small dormitories.

THIS IS WHAT WE DO WHEN WE’RE NOT ON SET

And when students aren’t on set, there’ll be oodles of great fun indoor and outdoor activities on offer for them to enjoy, including swimming, football, tennis, table tennis, basketball, dance, drama, film screenings, movie quizzes, talent show, excursions, competitions, games and more!

New for 2021: Students can choose to join optional supervised revision sessions on 3 afternoons per week (in place of sports activities) if they wish to catch up on academic work during the camp.

BOOKING

To book your place, please fill in the application form below.  We will then send you a registration form, a copy of our Terms & Conditions and deposit payment instructions of £300 (per student, per week of attendance) to confirm your booking.

Deposits are non-refundable, but in the unlikely event that the camp cannot be run in a Residential format due to circumstances beyond YFA’s control (including regulations around COVID 19), YFA will automatically transfer the camp to a Virtual online format which students can join from home. In this case, students would have the choice to either:

  • defer their deposit to the following year’s Residential camp
  • transfer their deposit to the Virtual format of the camp. YFA will refund the difference in cost (if applicable) between places on the Residential and Virtual formats of the camp.

ACCREDITATION

Young Film Academy is an approved candidate for accreditation by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) for Independent Further and Higher Education as a short course provider and can therefore issue Short Term Study Visa Letters.
