I was so worried about what to do with the kids when their school closed and they were stuck at home due to Covid-19, but the tutors at Young Film Academy 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 work schedule.
Young Film Academy are now offering even more Remote Filmmaking Courses and Masterclasses, starting from as little as £90.
All courses are for up to 4 kids, aged 10-17, which take place in your home via ZOOM. Students are immersed in an engaging creative process and learn important new skills – all while making a movie!
Remote Private Filmmaking Courses – these are private courses which can be booked for a flexible number of sessions.
4-Day Film School – students learn how to make a short film in just 4 days!
Screen-Acting Studio – this is for budding actors and actresses and runs across 3 weeks.
They also have 3 hour Masterclasses for the older ones.
For more information on all YFA’s Remote Private Filmmaking Courses I urge you to check out their site: https://www.youngfilmacademy.co.uk/courses/remote-filmmaking-courses/

I think it’s really important to find ways to have fun with your kids as well as teaching them something or getting them to learn. At the start of lockdown everybody was so fixated on making sure their kids don’t miss out on any education (rightly so), but the longer this goes on the harder it is to keep them motivated. And I now how they feel… my motivation is rockbottom.
So I had an idea to buy a kids pool table because I hear it’s really good for their hand-eye coordination and it’s a fun thing for me to get involved in too. I got a fairly cheap pool table from here and made sure it was suitable for kids: https://mancaveshq.com/blog/top-kids-pool-table-reviews/
I’m interested to know if anyone else had thought of any other ways to have fun as well as teach them something. It can’t always be all about studying…
