Film production is the art of risk management. Our experience filming with a crew made up of VFS students proved itself to be anything but risky. I owe this to the incredibly hands-on nature of the VFS curriculum. This practical approach is preparing the next generation of film crews the right way. The VFS staff, students, and facilities were best in class. I would not hesitate to partner with the school again in the future.
Producer at Maximum Effort
I was surrounded by wonderful people: knowledgeable instructors and students from around the world. Everybody was just really hungry and full of passion so it felt like a place I wanted to be. After Acting Essentials I decided I wasn't ready quite yet so I came back for the full year program. A plethora of classes taught me how to use my voice, analyze a script, build a character, and feel comfortable in my skin.
