I was so worried about what to do with the kids when their school closed and they were stuck at home, but YFA were great and really professional. Knowing that I could leave them to get on with a project for a few hours each day was such a relief, and it was both educational constructive! Would hugely recommend for any parents pulling their hair out about what to do, and its great fun for the kids! The team were super helpful and flexible to create a course around my schedule.
Here's more information from their site: Wherever you live in the world, as parents you’re looking for things to do with your kids, to keep them entertained and continue their education in a home setting.The good news is…Young Film Academy has the solution!

YFA professional filmmaking tutors will connect via Skype to guide the students through the process of making a movie from start to finish. This live course is packed with practical activities and will teach students to use their own equipment like a pro! Whether that's a smartphone, DSLR or video camera, students get hands-on experience running their own movie set.
