The Perfect Gift For Budding Filmmakers

Stuck on what to get a budding filmmaker aged 7-14 for Christmas? Look no further. How about a term of professional moviemaking training with Sparks Art film school in Olney? ...

Our sessions, held every Sunday at The Olney Centre from 10am until 12pm, allow our young film crew to delve into every element of the creative filmmaking process and explore all the different crew roles you find on a real film set.

"From camera techniques, scriptwriting, directing, editing and more, it is an exciting hands-on experience!"

Throughout the sessions, students work alongside our qualified and DBS checked filmmaking instructors to develop their skills, grow in confidence and expand their imaginations. At the end of the term, the film crew will have created their very own movie.

Each term we look at a new theme. Our recent theme was about seeing things from a different perspective. Our students have just finished editing their films, and we will share this with you all very soon. Our theme for January is around snapshot storytelling, where we work with characters telling big stories and making them into shorter versions. A great theme for getting those creative juices flowing!

In addition to our weekly sessions, we also hold holiday workshops where you learn all the techniques and create your own film in just one week. Our next workshop will be in the Easter holidays from the 4th to the 8th April 2022 and the theme will be Superheroes!

For further information on our sessions and workshops or to book a place, please visit our website. We'd love you to join in the fun and get inspired by filmmaking.
