This summer Met Film School, London’s leading provider of practical filmmaking courses, will be bringing their successful filmmaking camp to Marlborough College, Wiltshire, for the first time.
Aimed at film buffs aged 14 to 17, the two week residential programme in July will offer young people the chance to develop their interest in filmmaking or acting.
Whilst there is a strong focus on learning, those attending the summer camps will also have fun and enjoy the relaxing and stimulating environment within the beautiful grounds of Marlborough College.
A social programme revolving around film, including movie screenings and creative workshops, will also support the intensive learning experience.
The ideal summer holiday pursuit for those interested in further study in media and the creative arts, the programmes offer the opportunity for the next generation of filmmakers to hone their skills supported by industry leaders.
Each of the summer camps has a specific focus, allowing students to choose between filmmaking or acting, and ensuring that there is something for everyone.
Students will have the opportunity to develop basic skills in their chosen discipline, specialising further in their main interests over the duration of the course.
Participants will spend their days trying their hand at a variety of different roles, from directing and editing, cinematography, screenwriting, animation techniques and acting for the camera.
Jonny Persey, Chief Executive of Met Film School, said: “This is a brilliant way for Young People to develop their horizons, whilst meeting like-minded people, as well as being able to access the knowledge of industry professionals involved in the teaching of the courses.
“For young people hungry for a unique and inspiring education experience over their summer holidays, a Met Film School course is a hugely exciting opportunity.”
The transferrable skills gained over the duration of the courses will provide the perfect foundation for further study, whether in industry-related subjects or otherwise. For students wishing to take their interests to degree-level, the courses offer a relevant and interesting experience which can be referred to in personal statements and interviews.
“These courses really do offer something different, that sets them apart from similar programmes,” comments Rory Kilalea, leader of the Young Actors’ Academy.
“New this year is the Young Actors’ Camp, which builds upon the success of the Academy. Most young actors learn their craft from a theatrical perspective, but Met Film offers a unique opportunity to focus on the techniques of acting for film.
"Acting students work alongside those participating in the filmmaking courses, allowing for a true amalgamation of skills and techniques, to be shared across both interests.”
