Large Scale Filmmaking Workshops

For Summer Half Term

 

We think our courses, are fun, informative, educational, good value and happen in a friendly environment. But don’t just take our word for it, listen to what previous participants say by clicking here and look at the Participant Views.

 

Changes to our filmmaking workshops

We have listened to children and adults who have attended our workshops during the last year and will be making significant changes to our forthcoming courses. It is now established that Large Scale run filmmaking workshops during half terms and holidays. However, what is new is the content of the courses will change on each occasion they are run. We will still be offering basic filmmaking training, but will be expanding the creative content to allow participants to develop their interests and skills. Successive versions of each course will be sufficiently different, to allow budding filmmakers to attend on multiple occasions, and learn something new on each visit.
