So, this was forwarded to me. An 11 day, fully-funded (ie: FREE), residential film-making course that you can apply for if you have made a short film (ahem… Assignment, anyone?) and are interested in film-making. Did I mention it was FREE?
You can get details/website here: FILM ACADEMY SCOTLAND
You can see examples of work from previous courses here: YouTube Link (and check bottom of the post)
And you can ask me questions via scottishteacher…
Now get busy, get filming, and get happy!
Subject: BFI Film Academy Scotland Residential 2016
I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to you with an opportunity for any 16-19 year olds that you know who may be interested in taking part in an exciting residential film making course.
Applications are now open for the BFI Film Academy Scotland Residential 2016 in Edinburgh, and it is open to young people across the UK between the ages of 16-19.
Over the past three years we have run BFI Film Academies across Scotland, and have trained and developed over 120 young people, helping them to produce over 14 short films. Participants have progressed from the Academy onto college and university film and media courses, national residential courses in specialisms such as VFX, Screenwriting, Cinematography, onto film and TV sets and some have even started their own production companies.
Over the course of eleven days, between 2nd and 12th August, we are offering intensive training in; storytelling, directing, production, sound recording, editing and camera with the final aim of devising, shooting and producing a plot driven narrative short film. Working with key individuals within the film industry, we will provide an understanding of commercial and cultural knowledge and skills to help make a career in film a reality.
I have attached an information sheet with further information on the course and where to access the application form. Please do distribute this where you feel is appropriate, and if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you so much for your time.
