Ages 15-18 • London OR Live Online
The Young Filmmaker Summer Internship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring filmmakers aged 15-18 to work alongside top professionals and gain hands-on experience of the entire filmmaking process on real movie sets in London for 10 days.
Over the course of the Internship, you will be working on Hollywood-grade film sets, in industry level editing suites and recreating the biggest blockbusters London has seen. Working collaboratively with directors, actors, producers, editors, animators, composers, and scriptwriters you will receive expert guidance throughout the pre-production, production, and post-production cycles.
You will gain a 360-degree experience of London’s vibrant filmmaking scene: you will direct a professional actor through a heart-breaking monologue, recreate Christopher Nolan’s biggest blockbusters on location, visit some of the most iconic film-sets in the United Kingdom including famous backdrops used in James Bond and the music videos of world-famous bands, and meet the burgeoning filmmakers who are busy shaping the future of the industry.
Throughout the Internship you will have the opportunity to network with our expert filmmakers, as well as young filmmakers from around the world, and ask them all your burning questions.
Join us for a truly unique experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator in your portfolios and set you up for a future as a successful filmmaker.
