'Having seen the effect that having a child with autism can have on the family through my work with young people with learning disabilities, I was pleased to have the opportunity to work with Axel’s mother Catherine to explore these issues. Initially the film was going to focus more on Axel’s experiences, but as production went on, it became as much a story about Catherine’s experiences as a mother of a child with autism as it was about Axel. It was a privilege to make this film and I am extremely grateful to Catherine for allowing me to do so.'

 With fantastic facilities, dedicated industry lecturers and speakers and a central location in a filmmakers city such as Brighton, our mission is to deliver practical courses and train the next generation of talented filmmakers wishing to enter the British film industry.

Our flagship courses are the 2-year Filmmaking HND and Set Design for Film and TV HND programmes (equivalent to the first 2 years of a degree) and the Film  Production BA (Hons) Top-up Degree. These courses are very practical, industry led, fully accredited and funding is available through the student loan system to pay for your tuition fees. In addition, the school also delivers an industry focused Cinematography and Directing Diploma and the Set Design for Film and TV Diploma. These 9-month long courses will give you the skills and confidence to enter the film industry either as a freelancer, independent filmmaker or other career paths.

Brighton Film School also runs several shorter courses aimed at beginners of those wanting to study film part-time, for leisure or as an entry point to film school. These include courses in filmmaking, screenwriting, set design, plus our special Summer School.

For younger filmmakers aged 15-17 we offer a Brighton Young Filmmakers after school club and our special Summer School Juniors. Both are extremely popular and early application is advised.
