My daughter has got offers from all her chosen university film courses, and I am sure this is partly down to the portfolio Brilliant Film Academy has helped her make. David is an amazing, infatiguable organiser and teacher.

A fabulous team of staff who go above and beyond to teach their students everything about filming and production which in turn encourages confidence, resilience, critical thinking and collaborative planning. A great friendly place to spend a Saturday morning.

You learn so much more when you're hands on behind the scenes. It's so fun to see all your hard work pay off when watching what you've created. Everyone is so supportive, and I could not recommend this enough to everyone wanting to enter the industry.
