Summer Shoots at Sparks Film School Glasgow South

£285.00

Make your own movie this summer!

Discover unforgettable fun, creative learning and make a movie to be proud of.

Take part in SUMMER SHOOTS, our action-packed summer movie making camps for ages 5-17. Over the course of a week, young creatives work in their studio crews to write, direct, act, film, and edit their short film. The camp is hands-on and always a lot of fun. Whether your young creative is already passionate about film, or perhaps just interested in a creative camp, it’s a great way for them to develop skills, make new friends, and create something you can be really proud of.

Camps run Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm. A screening for parents and carers takes place at 2:30 on the last day so you can celebrate your campers hard work!

We always aim to make sure term dates line up with school terms as accurately as possible. This information is helpful to us in organising half term breaks, start and end dates each term.

Description

The camp covers practical, hands-on instruction in filmmaking techniques, as well as the opportunity for the young filmmaking crews to develop their own story and film. Participants are in small groups with similar ages:

  • Studio 1 – ages 5-7 (usually going into primary 2 or 3)
  • Studio 2/3 – ages 7-11 (usually going into primary 4-7)
  • Studio 4 – ages 11-14 (usually going into primary 7 to secondary 3)
  • Studio 5 – ages 14-17 (usually going into secondary 4+)

We start and intersperse each day with games and breaks to ensure campers have a chance to make new friends along the way. We welcome diverse learning styles and young people are welcome to come on their own or come with a friend–we always make sure everyone is included and can take part. Get in touch if you want to discuss your child’s unique needs.

Camps run Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm. We encourage parents/carers to join us at 2:30 on Friday to watch a rough cut of your campers film and cheer as they get their certificate of accomplishment. The final edit of the film is sent around to parents and posted to our YouTube channel a few weeks after the camp is complete. Families are also invited to our semi-annual screening event at a local cinema in Glasgow to see all the films on the big screen.
