WHAT DO OUR MEMBERS SAY?

Angharad George-Carey

“I genuinely can not tell you how much DFA has lifted my confidence. Thank you Seb, this course has just been incredible and I can not recommend it enough!"

Ted Hesser

Adventure Photographer

"The Documentary Film Academy is an incredible resource for any aspiring filmmaker. I’ve used it myself, and learned a lot along the way. For the price of a cheap lens, I think it’s a worthy investment.”
