An offer you can’t refuse

The National Film and Television School, in association with the BFI, has created the Talent Campus, and if you’re 16-19 you should be doing all you can to apply. As they say:

The BFI Film Academy Talent Campus delivered by the NFTS is the first ever national residential of its kind. With places for 54 young people aged 16-19 making short films under the tuition of industry experts, it’s a really exciting opportunity!

What are you waiting for?

Working for Enable Youth

We are currently working to create some short inspirational films for Enable Youth, an organisation that aims to improve what is available for young people in the Harborough district.

When we’ve finished you can watch them but until then here are some images from our summer filmmaking days.

Any students wanting to join in – helping to develop filmmaking skills as well as supporting a worthy cause – should watch out for bulletin notices and come along.

Getting started with Tarkovsky

Those of you studying film at A2 level will be lucky enough to consider at least one film by Andrei Tarkovsky. The useful Open Culture site has an interesting series on famous directors’ first – often student – films, and it recently covered the first films of Tarkovsky. What better place to start getting to know his films than right at the beginning?

Also, don’t miss the Tarkovsky-inspired film made by Tyler Moore for his A2 film studies coursework.
