We have successfully run our popular Film Making Boot Camp over a couple of years, we have had requests from former students who are keen to learn more.


So here it is Film Making! The Next Level, which is the title, and a pretty accurate description. It is a weekend of practical, hands on film making that will help you improve the staging and look of your footage no matter what your current skills are.


This course is suitable for anyone who has used a video camera before and will build in simple steps to give you the knowledge and practical skills to be confident in any filmmaking situation.


In this action packed two days you will learn how to make the best use of sunlight, artificial lighting and movie lighting. You will explore new approaches to filming scenes to ensure you have all the footage you want as well as the footage you need, so you have choices in the edit suite. You will learn the skills of classic continuity editing, and how to subvert it for effect.


The course will provide you with professional tips and tricks, and point out the pitfalls, so you can make brilliant films! As previously there is plenty of space for Q&A, so you can gain clarity on the aspects of film making that are important to you.


We will make every effort to make the course work for you, adapting content to you your skill levels and needs. It is also a great opportunity to meet other film makers and team up for future projects.
