Remember I mentioned the BFI/DCA Film school just before the summer holidays? (See the previous post for details)

Well, a little bird tells me you’ve got a couple of extra days (i.e. probably Wednesday at the latest) to apply… oh, and there may be some financial help available as well…

I can’t stress enough, this is an outstanding course if you have any real interest in film making. It covers all aspects of the process (so is invaluable for that alone), but more importantly, will give you access to professional skills, tools, and networking for the future. If I was your age, I’d be chewing my arm off for a chance to complete this… but I’m not. You are!

Honest… it’ll change your life! Apply! 🙂

BFI Discovery Film School 2016

The BFI Film Academy are running a film school in Dundee from August to December. It’s a big commitment as you will need to get through to Dundee every Thursday from 6pm – 8:30pm, and participate in a week long film school during the October break. It’ll also cost £25. (BTW: That’s for the whole course, not per week!) It’ll be hard work. And you’ll learn loads!

More importantly, it’s a fabulous opportunity to get experience in professional practice, meet others who have an interest in film-making, and this year, if you complete the course successfully,  you will receive the NCFE Level 2 Award in Preparing to Work in the Film Industry. Given that the next few years will see at least one new dedicated film studio complex opening in Scotland, and that the film industry has been identified as a potentially crucial contributor to the Scottish economy, there has never been a better time to consider film and TV as a future career…

And full details and application form are here: BFI/DCA Film School 2016

Applications close 8th August… so get busy! 😉
