The Sparks online filmmaking clubs offer fun and collaborative explorations of filmmaking from home.
Each online course offers young movie makers the chance to to develop their skills, to collaborate with others and to make their own productions. Participation helps to inspire ideas and imagination, as well as facilitate friendships through online creative collaboration.
Workshop activities and creative projects are led by our qualified Sparks instructors, who supervise all contact time.
By the end of each course, movie makers will have developed their key filmmaking skills and will have also produced their own film projects.
Collaboration & Creative Learning
All the activities are designed to be hands-on and practical, much like our face-to-face programmes. There are skill-building workshop activities and plenty of opportunities for creative collaboration.
Participants will be challenged through their own individual work and through collective group projects. Throughout, they will be developing a variety of different filmmaking skills, including visual storytelling and cinematography.
