Summer School Juniors

Filmmaking Summer School at Brighton Film School

Creative, intensive and fun 2 weeks of filmmaking

If you are over 18 and interested in our Summer School, we are still recruiting for our main 3-week Summer School in filmmaking.

Course information

Do you want to learn how to make films? Brighton Film School presents this fun, creative and practical film-making Summer School. This 2 week course will introduce you to digital cameras, an editing suite, the production process and working alongside like-minded creative people as you create and edit your first film.

On the Film Summer School, you will be taught by industry professionals who will show you how to bring your ideas and projects to life. You will form crews with your colleagues and, under our guidance, will plan your films to be shot on DSLR. You will go through the process of filmmaking from script development to storyboard and then plan your shoot schedule.

Take a look at what our Summer School Juniors 2013 created in just 2-weeks. Please be advised that the following short film has scenes of violence and adult themes, but it was written, created and directed by our Summer School students:

This is a great opportunity for you to develop your interest in film and see where it may take you.
