Sparks Olney Film-Making Holiday Camp Returns This Summer

I am very excited to let you know that our popular Sparks Olney filmmaking holiday camp returns this August. The Sparks team and I are giving young people between the ages of 9 and 15, the opportunity to join us for a full week of film-making masterclasses during the summer holidays ...

Sparks Olney is part of Sparks Film and Media Arts, the UK's leading provider of film and media activities for children and young people. Our holiday camp will run from Monday the 22nd to Friday the 26th of August 2022 at East Street Community Centre.

"The weeklong course will be jampacked with hands-on learning with our expert team!"

Students will delve into every stage of the film-making 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.

They will even be shooting on location at The Arches Theatre, an outdoor theatre in Clifton Reynes. 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.

"Free Taster sessions!"

Sparks Olney runs weekly Sunday sessions at East Street Community Centre. We will be back after half-term from the 12th of June, so why not join us for a free taster session? Come along and see if you like it (we're sure you will) and then perhaps sign yourself up for the term-time session or our film-making holiday camp.
