Dear YFA team, Thank you Young Film Academy for giving me the opportunity to work with so many people who are as passionate about creating films as I am. I can honestly say that the last two years of YFA summer camps combined have been the best four weeks of my life. You have helped me learn so much about myself and realise that creating films is what I love doing!
The Young Film Academy was a huge success for Henry. He used the skills he has learned to set up a film club at school and the seven of them are working on a film
I can without hesitation say that our MovieStar Party was the best birthday party my daughter has ever had!
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!
We were looking on Summer Camps UK but somehowI ended up finding this and was over the moon. Even though I wasn’t sure I would love it (because I love movies but wasn’t sure about making them) I was excited about all the other activities. The school / learning days were super engaging and the evening activities made it feel like a holiday. Looking forward to the next filmmaking residential summer camp. Thanks YFA!
