Great Escapes Summer Shoots With Sparks Olney

Are you aged between 9 and 15 and looking for something exciting to do during the summer holidays? Then look no further, The Sparks Olney Summer Shoots filmmaking course is just what you need ...

We are Sparks Olney, part of Sparks Film and Media Arts, which is the UK's leading provider of film and media activities for children and young people. In addition to our term-time filmmaking sessions, we also host week-long film workshops during school holidays.

Our next one is our Summer Shoot, which will run from Monday the 22nd to Friday the 26th of August 2022 at East Street Community Centre, Olney!

The theme for our Summer Shoots is 'Great Escapes'! Our filmmaking crew will create their own unique escapist films full of action-packed chase sequences, unlikely prison breaks and breaks of the most difficult kind - the fourth wall.

Students will delve into every stage of the filmmaking process, learning both the creative and technical aspects, including pitching, storyboarding, scriptwriting, directing shots, camera operation, film editing and so much more.

"By the end of the week, our young film crew will have written, filmed, starred in and edited their very own movie!"

It is very much a hands-on learning experience that gives young people a chance to try something new, boost their confidence, gain new skills and meet other young people with similar interests. Find out more and book your place today by clicking here to visit our website.

Alternatively, you could join us at one of our term-time sessions to see how you like it. We are at East Street Community Centre every Sunday from 10am until 12pm. The film crew are currently working on their latest film, so they are busy writing and storyboarding. It would be great to get some more crew members on board!

Come along and see if you like it, and then perhaps sign yourself up for the term-time session or our summer holiday camp! If you have any questions, please do get in touch.

We'd love to have you join us at Sparks Olney.
