Youth Film School at the Crescent Arts Centre

The Crescent Arts Centre is offering opportunities for folk of various ages to get practical experience and learn about film-making.

Starting on the 10 February and running for three weeks, a Youth Film School course is running between 10am and 4pm for 13-18 year olds.
Want to be the next James Cameron? or perhaps you're walking around with a great idea for a film and have never known how to develop it?

If so, then this is the course for you.

Through practical demonstrations, with broadcast equipment, tuition in story and character, this is a great opportunity to unfurl the magical world of filmmaking.

They're also running a Making the Documentary course for bigger children. It started a couple of weeks ago, but if you're lucky it'll tun again later this year.

This course will teach the fundamentals of documentary and generic filmmaking.
It will guide the student through recognising and developing a story, teach camera skills, sound skills, composition, lighting and editing.

The relaxed, informal atmosphere of this course provides an excellent introduction to those who are curious about the film making process but with more than enough content to fulfill those who would wish to pursue it further.

Good to see such good openings locally. If only I had the time ... or the lack of years!
