About Sparks Bournemouth & Poole

Sparks welcomes children and teenagers to action-packed film making classes and camps in Bournemouth and in Poole, Dorset. 

Our main aim is to encourage creativity and inspire confidence in children and teenagers, ages 5-18. We help them to develop their skills in film making and beyond. 

We meet every Saturday at Poole High School, where each term, our young film makers learn all about the creative process of film making. They learn how to direct, how to shoot, crew and edit their productions, as well as starring in front of the camera too. In the school holidays, half term camps offer children and teenagers the chance to unlock their creativity, gain new skills and discover the fun of movie making on the Sparks film set. 

Sparks class sizes are small (max. 12) for all our workshops, with high staff ratios to provide a high quality experience. All Sparks instructors are trained and DBS-checked.

Tim Berry Sparks Bournemouth & Poole

Hi, I’m Tim from Sparks Bournemouth & Poole.

I love helping young filmmakers in Bournemouth and Poole to capture their imaginations and inspire their creativity!

I’m an independent filmmaker and I’m passionate about sharing my own learning and experiences with the next generation.

I enjoy helping children in our community to tell their own stories and to discover their own talents for filmmaking and performance.

I trained at the National Film and Television School, as well as University College for the Creative Arts, where I got my degree in Film and TV Production, so I have lots of knowledge to share. 

I’m dad to four young daughters, which alongside making films, keeps me very busy!

I’m also a member of our local musical theatre scene, where I enjoy performing and directing shows. I love making creative work and it’s a joy bring out the best in creativity to young filmmakers at Sparks.
