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!
As an amateur actor, this was his first opportunity to really hone his screen acting skills and he simply loved it, emailing me mid-week saying “please sign me up for three weeks next summer”.
Bravo to the entire team for helping to make dreams come true! We will see you again next year.”
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!
