About Sparks Film School Balham

Sparks Film School Balham is the original Sparks film school.

Sparks founders Dan and Donna began running filmmaking classes in Balham in 2010. We started with just 9 children but we were soon welcoming hundreds of young filmmakers to our film courses.

Our Balham branch is managed by Jess, part of the Sparks Head Office team, along with Dan and Donna, who are still closely involved.
