Film Making (ages 8-15)

Course Overview 

Film Making is a creative, fun and contemporary subject. It enables students to embrace their imagination and enter a place where their dreams and ideas can become reality. The course explores different aspects of filmmaking, from creating trailers and adverts to producing and directing short films. Film Making students have created music videos, horror films, stop-start animation, mockumentaries and many more.
