Met Summer Camp Launch!

By Cassio | Categorised in Breaking News

This week our Chief Executive, Jonny Persey, spoke to Teaching Times about our New Met Summer Camp– an exciting Residential Summer Camp for students aged 14-17, with start dates in July and August.

Jonny reflected on his own experience of working in the industry (as a succesful feature film producer) to discuss the importance of learning skills early on; “Movie- making is big business with the industry supporting almost 117,500 jobs and contributing over £4.6 billion to the UK film economy.  The Met Summer Camp aims to give young people with an interest in making film a deep insight into the world of professional filmmaking, and a significant step forward in their filmmaking journeys.”

Students will spend their days trying their hand at a variety of different roles, from directing to editing and everything in between. They will learn how to write scenes, use a camera to tell stories, edit and direct actors. Alongside the intensive experience, there will be a fun social programme revolving around film, including movie screenings and creative workshops. By the end of the summer camp, students will understand key elements of cinematography including framing and lighting, and will be able to work with actors. The students will be taught and mentored by experienced professionals with substantive teaching experience, as well as being treated to talks and case-studies from industry guest speakers.

The programme will take place at Rugby School, Britain’s leading co-educational independent school and one of the oldest boarding schools in the country. Alongside the intensive professional film experience, there will be a fun social programme revolving around film, including movie screenings and creative workshops.
