Brighton Young Film Makers
Fun film based activities for the kids
Brighton Film School and Snowstorm Media present
Brighton Young Filmmakers is a fun and creative introduction for young people who want to explore filmmaking or see what kind of equipment is used to make some of their favourite films. We aim to provide practical digital film workshops for young people aged between 11-16.
Our young filmmakers experience the art of filmmaking and will find out what it takes to make a feature film, including the pitching process, pre-production, production and post-production. Brighton Film School has some of the best cameras, kit and facilities in the industry plus the dedicated and CRB checked staff who are industry professionals to show you how to use it.
These workshops are the perfect introduction to filmmaking and are suitable for either young people looking for a Summer holidays activity or for young adults who would like to explore the industry before deciding on their A levels or BTEC choices.
Some of our filmmaking workshops include:
- Morning or Afternoon fun workshops -
These special sessions will give you a chance to look at some of our really cool old cameras and learn how filmmaking used to be done and how it is done today.
- One-day workshops
Set up and crew a simple scene in the studio. Camera basics and a chance to use some really cool kit.
- Location Workshops
Pre-production and shooting over two days. This course deals with working safely with crew and equipment on location. Set up and crew a simple scene and 'get it right'. Highly recommended for those who are thinking of shooting a short film.
- Editing workshop
A look at Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5. This is delivered over 4 days. You will shoot and produce a short film as part of a team on location and in the studio. Edit and title your own version of the film and compare how yours stands up to the versions from the other members of your team. Please note that you should already have experience of using cameras before this workshop.
- Schools Visits
We often welcome schools groups to our studios for a morning of filmmaking. Why not ask your teacher to get in touch, it has to be more fun than double maths!
