Screen Argyll is excited to announce we are bringing the BFI Film Academy
back to Argyll! Due to COVID guidance, this year’s course will be run online during half term Monday 5th - Saturday 10th October 2020, followed by weekly online tutorials, and a film screening event at Oban Pheonix the weekend of 28th / 29th November (lockdown permitting!).
We are thrilled to be bringing this amazing opportunity for 16 - 19 year olds to young people across Argyll! A great option for creative teens or those curious about in a career in the film industry, during this professional online course they will work together to watch, experiment, create and learn more about animation and film in a variety of forms. This intensive programme includes hands-on filmmaking workshops where participants will be given the tools needed to develop an idea from rough sketch to big screen. The course will give them the opportunity to work online with professional animators and film makers, and skills covered include script writing, model making, animation, video editing, lighting for camera and sound design. They will use these new skills to create their own animations which they will then present these at a screening event which they create and coordinate. It also offers participants the support to work towards an Arts Award qualification which they can include in their CVs and personal statements and the opportunity to submit their film into a variety of festivals.
