Free filmmaking summer schools in Bradford and Scarborough open doors to Yorkshire teenagers from 29 July - 5 August







CAPE UK are running some fantastic free film schools later this month as part of a very limited national pilot scheme in Scarborough, Bradford and the London Film School. 

Open to anyone aged 14-16, these courses are free and have something for everyone whether that’s an interest in film, a career in the film industry or just looking forward to a different summer holiday experience full of exciting things to learn and discover. They will run for a week starting on Friday 29 July until Friday 5 August 2016 (excluding Sunday 31 July) in Scarborough and Bradford. Applications can be completed online now here

The two new summer filmmaking school courses are part of the new ‘Into Film Summer School’ initiative from the UK’s leading organisation for film education, Into Film, which is supported by the BFI through Lottery funding.

The week-long course will teach new skills and give an insight into the myriad of roles in the film industry. Participants are not required to have any previous filmmaking experience. The Into Film Summer Schools will provide up to 20 places for 14-16 year olds who will learn new skills and techniques in film production, be guided to think creatively and have a go at making a short film. These will premiere at special screenings at the National Media Museum in Bradford  and the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough on 13 and 14 August 2016.

In order to inspire their own filmmaking ideas, young people will watch a selection of short films with opportunities to hear from, and talk to, the directors and other makers of some of these films. They will learn about the key production stages from development to post-production such as editing, camerawork, storyboarding and scriptwriting and have the opportunity to explore a number of these roles themselves.

Film & TV professionals with a wide range of experience will work alongside participants offering guidance and  support to help them develop, make and share their work. Industry guests delivering masterclasses and workshops include: Connal Orton, Executive Producer for CBBC, whose work includes the BAFTA-Award- winning 4 O’Clock Club and All At Sea which was filmed in Scarborough; storyboard illustrator Richard Smith and award winning documentary filmmaker Karen Guthrie.

Applications are now open. Details about how to apply can be found on our website
