Met Film School, London’s leading provider of practical filmmaking courses, has launched Met Summer Camp 2013 to inspire the next generation of filmmakers.

Met Summer Camp is a supervised, residential programme designed for young people aged between 14-17 who are passionate about filmmaking. The course is two weeks in length and has start dates in July and August.

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.

Jonny Persey, Chief Executive of Met Film School said: “Met Summer Camp is a fantastic opportunity to develop great filmmaking skills whilst enjoying a richly rewarding and unforgettable experience. Students will eat, sleep and breathe film, with a total immersion into the world of filmmaking supported at every stage by industry professionals and culminating in the production of a short film.

“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 have the opportunity to work towards a Gold Arts Award. Information about Arts Award, which offers a unique set of accredited qualifications, is available online at: artsaward.org.uk.
