If you've always wanted to make a film, but haven’t known where to start, our First Film Summer School with Jonas Grimås will give you the tools to create your very own masterpiece.
Launched in 2015, this 2-week summer intensive will teach you everything from developing your ideas into a script to working with other filmmakers to shoot and edit your story.
You'll discover how professional filmmakers work with actors to create clear and consistent characterisation. You will be immersed in hands on production exercises, and finally, you will write and direct your own film - all in just thirteen days
Aimed at those with little or no practical filmmaking experience, this programme complements our Directing Summer School with Udayan Prasad for more experienced filmmakers.
Please note: Those who complete and submit an application by the early application deadline will receive priority for a place. We will continue to accept applications after the initial application deadline. Offers to subsequent candidates will be made subject to availability.
