Great camp to develop creativity and for children to learn about film making. In this short period of time the teachers were engaging; the group developed a story for a short film, acted, set the scenes and were behind the camera, my son loved the activities.

I've learned so much here I don't know where to start.
I’ve learned how to shoot a film properly, how to compose a shot. I’ve learned how to edit, how to take an idea and turn it into something you can see on the screen. It’s been amazing.

My 7 year old had the best time at Sparks summer camp, it really helped him grow his confidence too! He was initially reluctant to be in front of the camera, we were reassured by Sparks that he wouldn't need to but once he was there, he actually really enjoyed having a few lines in the final movie :) He still speaks highly of his time at Sparks several weeks later!
