This Easter, join us for a five-day filmmaking course to learn the essential skills of visual storytelling. Shoot, direct and edit your first short film working with seasoned actors and guided by industry professionals.
Our Easter Young Filmmakers’ Academy offers 13 to 17 year olds a comprehensive introduction to the world of filmmaking. Over five days, our young filmmakers work with experienced industry professionals to understand the key disciplines of the craft from script to screen, covering scriptwriting, cinematography, directing, sound and editing. This is an intensive but fun-filled introduction to the realities of working in film and TV and provides students with the grounding they need to start working creatively on their own films and making informed decisions about further training or a future career.
Duration: 1 week
This exciting, multi-disciplinary course is designed to provide 13-17 year olds with a fun-filled but thorough grounding in the various roles, from screenwriting and directing to cinematography, sound and editing.
Successful filmmaking is a team effort, so our young filmmakers will work in small groups with their peers in a studio environment where they can explore the whole production process, under the guidance and supervision of current industry professionals. They will learn to combine technical skills with visual communication and narrative storytelling, developing a story into a script and then shooting on iPhones directing professional actors.
An experienced editor will guide them through editing films using Final Cut Pro and the finished film will be screened to family and friends at a celebratory screening in the LFA Cinema.
All participants leave with the skills and confidence to continue filmmaking using their own smart phones.
