About Sparks Islington & Finsbury Park

Sparks Islington & Finsbury Park was established in 2020 and welcomes children and teenagers from North London to fun-filled film making classes and action-packed half term camps. 

We aim is to encourage creativity and inspire confidence in children and teenagers, aged 5-18. We love helping them to develop their skills in film making and beyond.

We meet every Saturday at Parkwood School in Finsbury Park, where young film makers call the shots inside their own film studios. They learn all about film making, from directing and camera skills, to video editing, production design, special effects and acting for camera. In the school holidays, our fun half term camps offer children and teenagers the chance to unlock their creativity, gain new skills and experience the magic of movie making. 

Sparks class sizes are small (max. 12) for all our film making workshops, with high staff ratios to provide a high quality experience. All Sparks instructors are trained and DBS-checked.

Sparks Islington - Tom Mavro

Hi, I’m Tom from Sparks Islington & Finsbury Park. 

Building on many years in videography and video editing training for professionals, I’m delighted to help develop these skills with younger students – the next generation of film makers and content creators! 

I’ve been a video production trainer, professional editor and videographer for almost 20 years, so I have plenty of knowledge and experience to share. Recently I’ve specialised in post-production training, leading courses in Adobe Premiere and After Effects, as well as Final Cut Pro and Photoshop. I’m a certified Instructor with Apple, Adobe and Da Vinci Resolve, so alongside developing all the skills you need on set, we can also help you shine in post-production skills too. 

Knowing how valuable these skills are and how much opportunity there is out there for young film makers, I want to help inspire them and provide outlets to express their creative ideas using video and digital technologies. Here at Sparks Islington & Finsbury Park, we make truly amazing productions. I’d love to welcome you along to take part soon! 

Tom Mavro-Michaelis
