Are you a visual storyteller? Are you passionate about sharing your faith?
This summer Youthscape are offering a chance for 15 young people aged 16-19, who are passionate about sharing their faith on YouTube, to join together for an opportunity of a lifetime. Learn from professional filmmakers (including James Chapman who helps to make GB’s koko films) and improve your creativity, film, and editing skills.
Every day there will be two masterclasses run by James, an international filmmaker. The classes will cover a wide range of themes from finding your purpose as a filmmaker and the art of storytelling, to technique and post-production. The classes have been designed to cover the essentials of filmmaking; whether you've only just picked up your camera or you’ve been filming for years.
Each day you’ll have a big chunk of time to put into practice what you’ve learnt by actually making your own film. Workshops will take you through the process of creating a video from beginning to end, and you’ll have the opportunity in these times to collaborate with others, or go it alone.
Accommodation and food will be provided throughout the duration of Youthscape’s Film School. You'll be staying at Youthscape’s headquarters. All washing facilities and camp beds will be provided, and there will be separate sleeping arrangements depending on gender and age. You'll need to bring with you a sleeping bag, pillow, towel and toiletries in addition to suitable clothing and shoes etc.
Date: 13-16 August 2017
Venue: Youthscape, Luton
Age: 16-19 years
