Upcoming Met Summer Camps: For Budding Filmmakers and Actors
Met Filmmaking Camp and Met Young Actors’ Camp are supervised, residential programmes designed for budding creative teens aged between 14-17 who are passionate about filmmaking and acting. The courses are running this summer, with start dates available in July and August.
Students at last year’s summer camp wrote, directed, filmed and edited their own Zombie movie!
The programme will take place at Marlborough College (July) and Rugby School (August), Britain’s leading co-educational independent schools and two of the oldest boarding schools in the country. The Schools combine centuries old history with the very latest facilities, be it the state of the art multimedia centre, tennis courts or the modern teaching classrooms, all combining to create a unique and inspirational educational experience.
“The best thing about the course was that it was a professional and valuable learning experience, but also really fun and enjoyable.” Matyas bellagamba, Met filmmaking camp, 2013
Students spend their days trying their hand at a variety of different roles, from directing to editing and everything in between. They 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.
Fun and challenging, this programme demands full commitment, in the evenings and on weekends, so you’ll need to work hard, often under significant time pressure. This is an opportunity to develop great filmmaking skills whilst enjoying a richly rewarding and unforgettable experience. Find out more by requesting a prospectus.
