Have A Great Escape This Summer With Our Filmmaking Club!

If you are aged between 9 and 15 and looking for something exciting to do this August, then we have just the thing, our Filmmaking Club. We are Sparks Olney, part of Sparks Film and Media Arts ...

Sparks Arts is the UK's leading provider of film and media activities for children and young people and our Great Escape Summer Shoots filmmaking club is just what you need. Taking place from Monday the 22nd to Friday the 26th of August 2022 at East Street Community Centre, Olney.

"Our young film crew will delve into every stage of the filmmaking process!"

Students will learn 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.

The theme is 'Great Escapes', so we'll be looking at producing a unique escapist film full of action-packed chase sequences, unlikely prison breaks and breaks of the most difficult kind ... of the fourth wall.

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. Our students will also get the opportunity to film on location at The Arches Theatre, an outdoor theatre in Clifton Reynes.
