Here’s to 2020…
Happy New Year! We hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas and we’re excited for what the new year holds.
It’s Our Birthday!
2020 marks our 10th anniversary. We’re looking forward to marking a decade of movie making in May with some special celebrations.
This year, we’re also working with some incredibly talented franchisees to open up new branches of Sparks around the UK. It’s long been an ambition of ours to open up our opportunities for young filmmakers outside of London and this will be an exciting first step in that journey. We’ll be announcing the new locations in the coming months – watch this space!
Tons of Fun New Holiday Camps
We always try and introduce new ideas each holiday and this year, we’re really excited about the upcoming themes. One of our resolutions to to try and be even more fun, so there’s Indiana Jones style action-adventure excitement in February half term, with a focus on dramatic action sequences. In Easter, we’ll be looking at lots of mystery in a ‘Secrets and Lies’ themed series of workshops. The summer will be an incredible, busy time full of movie making too, with some brand new camps scheduled for 2020.
The New Sparks Progression Scheme
New this year, we’ll also be introducing a brand new progression scheme to the Saturday Shoots. This will support our crew members to work towards accredited levels that recognise their development in creative, narrative and technical areas. This has been in the pipeline for quite some time, with a lot of development taking place behind the scenes. We’re so excited to finally launch the scheme and watch filmmakers achieve their next level!
Enjoy the New Year…
There is so much that we’re looking forward to this year… We have so many great feelings about 2020. Whatever you’re up to this year, and whatever you’re looking forward to, we hope that this year is filled with lots of fun, adventures and memories to come!
