If you have every thought you would like to make a film - a real film - and you live in the Goole area, this is for you!
We are NOW seeking young people aged 13 – 18 who are budding actors, film-makers, writers, animators, researchers, technicians, musicians and costume designers to make the film. Over the next 2 months, four films are planned to be shot using Super8 film cameras, supervised by professional filmmakers from across Yorkshire and beyond. The challenge - to submit to one of the toughest and most exciting film festivals in the world - Straight 8, and be considered for screenings in London and Cannes!
The first films I ever made were with a Super 8 camera. Learning to use film gives young people the chance to use the technology that founded the film industry. The flickering projector takes us right back to the magic and dream of cinema. The particular challenge - and the skill in this competition, comes from creating and editing a film in camera. We have no second changes. No take twos. No chance to ‘fix it in edit!’ Our young filmmakers are going to be taught skills and the techniques not normally taught outside film school. We have an incredibly talented team of people from the four corners of the film industry from writers and directors to actors, editors, composers and costume designers, who will all be sharing their knowledge with these young people. What we are doing is totally unique. We are creating a mini film school for budding filmmakers. It’s going to be incredibly exciting and will push our young people to realise their creative potential.

Due to government cuts, I’ve been told this will sadly be the last CPD day that the National Media Museum offer for the foreseeable future, and I’m eager we sell out this event. I’ve taught this programme around the UK, from York to Hull to the Isle of Wright to amazing feedback.
During this 1 day course teachers will learn about how to use animation as a creative learning tool in the classroom.
This course aims to:
2. Identify the links between animation and the national curriculum
3. Discuss the practice of using animation in the classroom
4. Gain practical experience of using animation as a tool for learning
To book places, contact the School Services Officer, Di Carey on 0844 856 3799, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
