Training – Young Directors

YOUNG DIRECTORS FILM SCHOOL

We run weekly afterschool clubs for young people who want to learn how to make films.  The aim is to make students capable of making their own films from scratch by working together on group projects over the term.

Each student gets their own custom made workbook. We will have guest lectures from colleagues at the BBC – from camera operators to directors.

Classes run at the Round Chapel, Lower Clapton Road on Tuesday evenings. There is a class for 9-11 year olds 4-5.30pm. This is followed by a class for 12-15 year olds 5.30-7pm.  

We are running week long courses during the summer. These will be from 9am-5pm, Mon-Fri. During the course we will show students how to make films with an iPad but also write and make a film together using professional cameras, sound and lighting.

We made the following film in one day with students on our Easter course. All students are expected to join in with the filming and the acting.
