That’s a Wrap on Easter Camps 2024

After an epic and fun-filled Easter holidays, it’s time to call “that’s a wrap” on this year’s Easter Camps!

Young film students taking part in Sparks Film School Easter camps have been busy making their own film productions all over the UK. Together in small film crews, they have written, developed, planned, directed, shot, crewed and produced lots of new youth film productions!

Superhero Shoots across the Country

This Easter we’ve had film shoots taking place across the country, with camps taking place from Hove to Glasgow. We have more than 30 film schools across the UK, and the locations have been supercharged with superhero energy this school holiday!

We’ve been so impressed by the creativity on show in our film sets. The latest addition to the Sparks location map is Sparks Film School Teddington, who opened their doors to a brand new film crew this Easter.

All throughout the Easter, the young filmmakers and young animators have shown so much creativity, imagination, collaboration, talent, perseverance, artistry, skilfulness and positivity. It’s been a joy to see them shining with ideas and then to see them bring those ideas to life.

The Unbeatables

This year’s theme – The Unbeatables – challenged the filmmakers to produce their own super charged superhero masterpieces.

On The Unbeatables, young filmmakers flew through the air, saved the day and produced powerful effect sequences in this turbo-charged superpowered movie making workshop. Members explored origin stories, comedy techniques and how to use camera trickery to bring our heroes’ powers to the screen.

The young filmmakers taking part created their own films, full of super-powered sequences, colourful costumes, unusual origin stories and amazing arch-villains.

Working as a team

One of the crucial parts of our Easter camps is how to work well as a team. Members explore a range of different jobs on the film set, taking responsibility for producing their own film.

As our crew members take on the roles of Director, Camera Operator, First Assistant Director, Clapper-Loader and Actor, they must practise leadership, listen, teamwork and feedback skills.

We’ve been so impressed with how well our filmmakers have risen to the challenge to produce their films and communicate their ideas effectively.
