Film Making at osmington bay

Do you think you could be the next Steven Spielberg or George Lucas? Perhaps you dream of being the next Keira Knightley or Johnny Depp?

What’s it all about?
Fancy yourself as the new Steven Spielberg or Ridley Scott? Love the cinema, but think you could do better? Or do you dream of being the next Keira Knightly or Johnny Depp? If so, then this is your holiday! You and your group will choose the type of film to make – adventure, fantasy, thriller or comedy. Then you’ll become a film crew, creating your own blockbuster to show at the end of the week. What’s more, you’ll also take your film home on DVD too!

Can I do other activities as well?
Yes – every day there’s also half a day of activities from our brilliant multi activity programme, plus different entertainment every evening. So you can pack in loads of other new experiences too!

What do I learn?
You’ll learn the basics of film and sound recording, performing, and scriptwriting; and how to use sound effects, visual effects and music.

You’ll also find out what’s involved in directing a movie, before editing your film with professional software.

Do I need any experience?
No, our fantastic trained instructors and film industry experts will guide you through the whole process, and give you tips from the professionals.

Do I need any specialist equipment?
No, we’ll provide all the equipment, from top spec digital video cameras and editing equipment, to costumes and make-up. Just bring your imagination!
