Don't just imagine...lights, camera, action!
We are surrounded by the moving image and children are incredibly well versed in technology from a young age. Our film making classes, combine creative engagement with professional filmmaking tuition. Our unique classes will encourage children not just to imagine, but provide them with both the physical and creative tools to bring their ideas to life and create their own films. In our filmmaking classes, students will explore the full creative process of filmmaking, learn about pre-production, visual storytelling and screen-writing before bringing their ideas to life in front of the camera. This experience can be very rewarding to students of all ages and is the perfect activity for remote learning!
Filmmaking will appeal to children with many different interests, whether a child already has an interest in film and/or technology, or is looking to gain in confidence through fun workshops that will engage them creatively. Students will learn about the different roles on a film set, both in front and behind of the camera, and will try the roles of being actor, director and other production roles. Skills-based lessons will give them an understanding of operating camera and sound equipment, while acting technique lessons will highlight the differences between acting on screen and acting on stage.
Our filmmaking classes can be offered as a weekly extra-curricular class, in which students will have plenty of time to learn various filmmaking and screen acting techniques. Alternatively, Reel Acts can be offered as a specialist workshops that can support the teaching of the national curriculum.
