Reviews for Sparks Filmmaking Classes

Matthew J.

We wanted to thank you and your colleagues for everything you have done for our son. As an autistic child who was not sporty or performative, Sparks was an opportunity for him to explore his interest in the technical side of filmmaking in a safe space that was welcoming and friendly. The last couple of years have been difficult for him and us as we have tried to find him a supportive new school, so Sparks was a positive weekly session where we knew he would see familiar children and trustworthy adults who would keep him busy with an enjoyable activity and take his mind off of things for a couple of hours a week. We are very grateful to you and your team for all your help and support.

All 3 of my children age 12 10 and 8 went to Sparks and they all absolutely loved it. Tim and the team were incredible with all the children. They and so much fun and actually want to go back. They managed to learn things I could never teach them and they were so excited to come home each day and tell me about there film and what they had been doing. Will definitely be going again.

This has been an awesome class for my son. He’s really grown in confidence through the skills he’s learnt and is completely at home producing and editing his own work now. And more confident in school theatre too. Would thoroughly recommend.
