October Half Term Film Making Course
Join Sparks over October half term to make a terrifying sci-fi horror movie!
Explore sci-fi themed special effects and tons of horror movie making techniques in order to produce an unforgettable, suspenseful film production.
This fun half term workshop for teenagers offers the chance to learn how to put together their own movie production, just like on a real film set.
Crew members develop their skills and talents, behind and in front of the camera. They step into all the crew roles, from director, to camera operator and production crew, as well as taking on all the starring roles as they make their own unique movie across three action-packed days.
By the end of the workshop, the movie makers will have made their own movie to add to their portfolios and to celebrate with family and friends.
Over three action-packed workshop days, young movie makers (age 7-11) produce their own creative film project.
They take on all the starring roles, as well as everything that happens behind the camera too. They step into all the crew roles you find on a real film set, including directing, camera operation, crewing, and even more.
The crew members will explore how to use a blend of technical and visual effects to create some incredible intergalactic scenes, inspired by enduring classics including Star Wars.
Our specialist workshop instructors guide them through the process to help them make a movie to be proud of.
