“I highly recommend Sparks to Local Mums. My son genuinely loves it and is beginning to gain confidence and ability across the gamut of technical, production and editorial skills. But more importantly he has fun – watching Netflix takes on a whole new narrative!”
Helena Tait, Local Mum 

“I recommend Sparks to Local Mums. My daughter really loved the session on Saturday. She has been talking about it a lot. It is especially good for her as she has been unhappy at school and having anxiety issues, making films is a huge new passion for her. She was determined to come on her own, without a friend. She was made to feel really welcome and involved.” 
S.P. Local Mum

“I highly recommend Sparks to Local Mums. To say this is the highlight of his week is an understatement. He counts down from one Saturday to the next. He is so inspired.”
N. Montaigue, Local Mum

“I recommend Sparks to Local Mums. It’s the perfect place for any young person with the first spark of a love for film, a fully-fledged passion for cinema, or who just wants to express themselves creatively. My son has relished every second he’s been going.” 
Danny Leigh, Local Dad

Sparks is launching in Dorking, Surrey. We’re excited to welcome children and teenagers to our fun filmmaking classes and half term camps. 

Hi, I’m Mark from Sparks Dorking…

I live locally and have been teaching media and film nearby for over 20 years. I also have extensive experience of working in the film and TV industries.

I am driven by a passion for the moving image and I take inspiration from the creativity and imagination of the children I teach. Kids see the world in unique ways and their imaginations know no limits. Providing them with the tools and skills to unlock their creativity is both a privilege and a joy.

Primarily film-making should be fun so by encouraging their passions and helping them to discover their skills, we will be nurturing the story makers of the future.
