Make a short film in 5 days at our annual summer holiday Film Camp for children aged 7-11. Enter the room on Monday with just an idea or two, and leave on Friday with a film in the can that you shot and starred in.
Starting on Monday we’ll write a story for a film we can produce in a week. Tuesday will be rehearsing and assigning roles, from actors to camera and sound operators.
Then from Wednesday to Friday it’s lights, camera, action as we go out on set to make our film a reality.
The film will then be edited by the course tutor ready for its ‘premiere’ screening in the autumn.
Designed with different learning styles in mind, Film Camp covers all the key elements of filmmaking and production, including scriptwriting, shooting, direction and editing.
All equipment and training will be provided by our expert tutor Keith Allott.
PLEASE NOTE: we’re planning to run this course in-venue at Phoenix in a ‘COVID-safe’ environment, however if this is not possible due to further COVID-19 restrictions we will deliver the course online. In this case, participants will have a mix of tutor-led online learning and self-directed filmmaking tasks to complete at home, supported remotely our tutor Keith and Phoenix staff. The main outcome will still be to create a short film over the week.
