Summer Film School is a filmmaking project for young people produced in partnership between Exeter Phoenix & Four Of Swords.
The film school takes around twenty 10-14 year olds and works intensively with them over the course of a week, guiding them through each stage of the film-making process: from script-writing to set-building and costume-design, through to acting and filming, and trying out animation and special effects. The project takes place at Poltimore House, and as always we are indebted to their hospitality, their flexibility, and their keenness to accommodate.
Summer Film School 2017 will take place from Mon 31 Jul – Fri 4 Aug and follow a similar format where by the kids will be able to develop a short film from script to screen. Tickets are now on sale of this year’s event and can be purchased by this booking link: TBC
Over the last three years the summer film school has produced a number of successful and engaging short films, all produced, shoot and acted by the young groups, which you can view below.
