This experience is almost fully-booked and we shall close registration in the next few days.
The Young Filmmaker Summer Experience gives students aged 15-18 a 360-degree, fully immersive experience of working as a filmmaker in London.
Over the course of 15 days, students aged 15-18 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of filmmaking that one can imagine: planning, directing, filming and editing your first original film scene; using professional industry-standard equipment on the sets of some of the biggest blockbuster films shot in the UK; having your work featured in an exclusive film festival attended by professional directors.
Also available on the Summer Experience are immersive visits to iconic film sets, including backdrops used in James Bond movies, The British Film Institute and the National Film and Television School.
Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful filmmaker.
