Film School - Level 2
Each school holiday you can come and work with City Eye's professional filmmakers and try your hand at exciting disciplines - such as drama, documentary and green screen - while working on themed films. Learn from experts using professional filmmaking equipment whilst having a great time on these rewarding and informative workshops.
Film School is ideal for those new to film or those who have attended Film School before and want to develop their ideas and skills further.
Level 2 Film School is generally for older children and young people. However, we are happy to discuss any young person's needs and abilities to ensure that, regardless of age, they end up in the best group for them.
All films made at Film School will be posted onto the Film School Films page on the City Eye website or on the City Eye YouTube channel where you can share them with friends and family.
