Summer Holiday Camps for Young Filmmakers

Take part in 2022’s Summer Shoots, epic movie making summer camps for young film makers.

Over five action-packed film workshop days, film makers shoot and star in their own unique movie production.

They learn all about the different aspects of film making as they work as part of crew to produce their own movie from scratch.

Half Term Holiday Camps: What Happens? 

In Sparks half term holiday camps, young filmmakers dive into a themed, action-packed filmmaking workshop. 

Our team of specialist filmmaking facilitators guide the crew members to produce their own unique film production, from start to finish. 

Crew members express their ideas and devise their own stories and scripts. They also step into all the professional crew roles you find on a real life film set. They  direct, shoot and crew their productions. For everyone who enjoys acting, they can star in front of the camera too. 

Everyone taking part takes away lots of new experiences and newfound knowledge about filmmaking.

It’s a great way to make new friends and discover new talents.

“My son rated his day 10 million out of 10!”
