For ages 14 to 18
Our Film summer school course gives students the unique opportunity to discover the fascinating world of filmmaking under the expert tuition of working professionals in the film industry.
Film Summer School Course
Film at ISSOS gives our students a practical introduction to all aspects of film through a combination of interactive lessons, technical training and hands-on experience behind the camera.

What Students learn
Students of all abilities will benefit from expert tuition on all aspects of the filmmaking process from location scouting, scriptwriting, set design, directing, production management, right through to cinematography and editing.
They will receive instruction in the use of professional cameras and editing software, and working in small teams they will learn to work in a production crew and take turns to direct, produce and create their own unique films.
This elective has been designed to give students a practical introduction to film at the same time as helping them to appreciate the rewards of teamwork and the satisfaction of putting their ideas into action. Students will create their own unique films, gain the confidence to express and discuss their ideas, and learn what it takes to put their ideas into action and discover the rewards of seeing their ideas come to life on the big screen.
