Hay FilmMakers Summer School

We held a Summer Film School for age 12+ from Thursday August 7th- Saturday August 9th. We provided 3 whole day workshops on how to make a film.

  • Day 1 introduced the real 'treatment', how to create a 'logline' and pitch a short film idea to producers. Great ideas were developed using Storyboards.

  • Day 2 explored camera shots, sound, location, visual images further and went out on location using props and costumes to shoot a short storyboarded film.

  • Day 3 - Second short film was shot and more filming practice in front of and behind the camera.

We may be in the company of the next famous film director, or film actor. 


The edited films were put together for presentation at the first meeting of the Hay FilmMakers club
