We’re Back – In Real Life!

From this weekend, filmmaking classes will be back in real life! We’re very excited to see all the young filmmakers back once again in person. 

All things going to plan (everything crossed!), we’ll be completing the rest of this term face-to-face. We plan to extend the term until 19th December, which is just to make sure all our filmmakers have the most possible opportunity to see one another and work together in person this term.

We’ll be taking a break over Christmas and then we’ll be back from 16 January for an exciting new term of filmmaking classes and productions! 

 

Thank you so much…

We just want to say a huge thank you to all the filmmakers, who have worked brilliantly online over the last few weeks. You have all been absolute superstars and shown such resilience and creativity. We’ve been in awe of how well you’ve worked together, how you’ve taken on responsibility for remote filming and supported one another. Whilst we know online classes aren’t the most ideal format – and we’d all rather be face-to-face – we have loved seeing you all rise to the creative challenges and thrive under such unusual circumstances.

A very big, resounding “well done” from all of the team here!  

 

From Saturday…

The face-to-face classes will pick up where online/remote filming left off, with plenty of group scenes and shots still to film. We’ll be using all the material produced during the online sessions and look forward to integrating that with all the face-to-face production work too. We’re excited to see how the films turn out. We know many of the crews have used the online classes as a creative prompt, so we’re looking forward to seeing how you’ve turned the opportunity to your advantage. 

We can’t wait to see everyone back from this weekend. We’re excited to continue with work on all your productions and get stuck into more filming together as a group, as well as lots of post-production work too! 

Next Term…

We’ll be starting back up after Christmas with a brand new term and a new theme to explore. We’ll be looking at some new techniques, as well as developing all the filmmaking fundamentals. 

We’re particularly excited about next term, as we’ll be launching lots of new classes in our new film school locations! 

From January, filmmaking classes will be opening up in:

  • Bournemouth
  • Chiswick
  • Dorking
  • Enfield
  • Manchester (Hyde) 
  • Walthamstow 
  • Wimbledon 

We are so, so, so excited to welcome lots of new young filmmakers to the Sparks crew!

Thank you once again to all our weekly filmmaking class members. We can’t wait to see you at the weekend!
