who are we looking for?
We are looking for 20 young people aged 12-15 who want to find out more about film and think they might like to try for the first time, or further develop, their filmmaking skills over the Easter holidays – previous filmmaking experience isn’t necessary.
We welcome applications from all young people.
when and where?
We are waiting on updates regarding how the easing of restrictions will affect face to face out of school educational activities - we would very much like to deliver most of the course's practical sessions face to face on Saturdays between May - July 2021, mornings mainly with some full days. As restrictions stand, this currently wouldn't be allowed. Venues are still to be confirmed dependent on when and how they are able to reopen but include central Scarborough locations and, we are hoping, Dalby Forest. If restrictions mean we need to move the course online, that won't be a problem - we have delivered several filmmaking courses online in the last year. Participants will connect online using Google Education Suite, Discord and Zoom - it will be useful to have an internet connection and device you can connect to the internet with such as a laptop, tablet or smartphone and if needed, we will work with you to resolve any gaps in home connectivity you may have.
how much does it cost?
Courses are free to attend. However, a £20 deposit is required to secure your place once offered and this will be returned upon completion of the course. If you think you will struggle to find the deposit, please still apply – if your application is successful, we’ll make sure you can attend - there is a bursary fund to cover these costs where eligible.
