Spring Break Bootcamp March 13 -17
In just 5 days, students can develop crucial film skills, collaborate in groups, and bring captivating stories to reality through camera techniques, lighting, and directing. They will act and film scenes from a self-created script, then view their completed work, and commemorate their accomplishment.

2018/2019 School Year Kicks Off
This year we want to begin the update with a warm welcome of the VFX academy into our Delta Film family! So far, we’ve already collaborated to create composites and ball animations with our newest instructor to our team Jim Hebb. We are so excited to expand our student’s learning into this huge industry in our city under the leadership of teacher coordinator Braeden Saucy. We welcome back Cameron Bancroft as the primary instructor at the Film Acting Academy as well as Sandra Almond, Jason Mills and Garnet Campbell for the Film Production Academy. I am still here, but with a new name! Jennifer McKee is now how I am known and I am the Teacher Coordinator of the Delta Film Academy.
Already this year we have written new stories and soon to come are 30 individual 60-second films, monologue close-ups and 18 mask films. Stay tuned in our portfolio section to see a sampling of these projects and more!
A huge thank you Alex Zahara, Viviane McConkey, Bob Habros and alumni Yale Shi and Nathan Young for being our special guests the last couple months!
