“I really loved my time on the National Youth Film Academy Summer Course, in 2015 as a Producer. I enjoyed every minute of working under extreme pressure with a passionate group of individuals like myself. It was a great experience making a short film within the space of 10 days as it was really now or never, and it made me grow as a person and a filmmaker. The people I met I will know and work with for life, and I am grateful for National Youth Film Academy giving us the opportunity to work together on the course and in the future.”
