If you are looking to add a new session to your after school clubs, which is fun, creative and sociable; how about a movie-making course? At Sparks Olney, we create inspiring opportunities for young people aged between 9 and 14 ...
If you'd like to discover how to set up a movie-making after school club with Sparks Olney support, get in touch!
Our workshops enable young filmmakers to step into all the roles you'll find on a real film set. They take on the directing, the camera work, all the crewing, as well as shining on screen in all the starring roles too. Sessions offer students the chance to work on their own productions, exploring a new theme and different techniques each term.
"This allows them to develop their ideas and skills!"
Our action-packed workshops are delivered by an experienced team who not only explore the fundamentals of film-making, but help boost imagination, confidence and practical skills. We have all the movie-making equipment needed to carry out these sessions, all we need is a classroom and some students who are hungry to learn!
The Sparks Olney team would welcome the opportunity of bringing our movie-making course to your school and sparking your student's imaginations with our new and exciting workshops. If you're interested in finding out more, take a look at our website and contact us for further details.
"We offer free taster sessions too!"
We also hold a weekly course at The Olney Centre, Olney each Sunday 10am until 12pm. Why not come along for a free taster session to see how you like it? No experience is necessary.
Until next time ...

David is the owner of David Pibworth Productions who provides entertainment for theatre and corporate events. This ties in very well with The Arches Theatre, an outside venue that David owns underneath a disused railway line, equidistant from Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes. This was one of the few venues that could operate with social distancing in place during the summer of 2020 and where they ran everything from Shakespeare to Richard Digance through the summer months.
David has been involved in light entertainment for many years, even going back as far as working on a production with Norman Wisdom in London. He has a knack of keeping in touch with everyone he's worked with and would bring such people as Chas and Dave, Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk round to play locally when the chance arose.
His company also represent the stage rights for Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, the writers of Steptoe and Son and Hancock's Half Hour. He has recently negotiated permission with Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais to produce Porridge on stage although this is all hampered by the current situation and the availability of theatres.
Next year, at the Arches Theatre, he will produce Ripping Yarns, written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones. This will be an interesting production as not only does one episode involve playing a football match, but also with the agreement of Michael Palin and the wife of the late Terry Jones, it has been decided that all the profits on this production will go to a dementia charity as Terry Jones died as a result of dementia, as did David's father and uncle.
