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!

Only £659 per child

Morning Activities Half day Film Making
Lunch Worked up an appetite? Great – it’s time to replenish your energy stores with the dining room. If you have energy to spare after lunch your Group Leader will always be ready for a quick kickabout with a ball or you could relax and chat with your new friends.
Afternoon Activities Zip Wire and Low Ropes
Dinner

Time to eat again – a different menu each day (and did we mention, often evening meals come with a hot pudding too – or you can stick with fruit if you prefer).

Evening Ents Talent shows, campfires, quizzes and much more – your evening entertainment programme gives you the chance to get together with everyone else in your age group and have some laughs.
Bedtime Bedtime. The younger ones go first whilst older groups have time to chill out and chat or watch a DVD. Then it’s lights out and time to sleep ready to do it all over again tomorrow!
