They will develop a wealth of new skills on and off camera, and gain confidence in working as a team and expressing their ideas. At the end of the week, budding filmmakers will have the opportunity to create their own movie.

They may even have the chance to shoot a live production at quirky outdoor venue, The Arches Theatre, in Clifton Reynes during its summer season. This is still to be confirmed!

No experience is necessary, but a passion for film creation and production, plus a positive attitude will help get the most out of this course. Further course details to follow shortly. If you know of a young filmmaker who would be interested in attending a one-week course in early August, please email David Pibworth stating their name and age.

Please share this fantastic opportunity with your friends and family, and let's see if we can find the next Steven Spielberg and Patty Jenkins from in and around Olney! Please contact David if you have any questions or queries.

Until next time ...

About David Pibworth ...


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.
