FILM SCHOOL

SUMMER FILM SCHOOL is a collaboration between FOUR OF SWORDS and Exeter Phoenix. The project was founded in 2014 by Damo Cross, a director who wanted to provide a “full fat” film-making experience for aspiring actors and auteurs aged 10-14. FOUR OF SWORDS was formally brought on board the following year and has been taking the lead organising and co-ordinating the project since 2016.

‘It’s no mean feat keeping a 13 year old completely absorbed, engaged and creatively challenged for a week and we are indebted to everyone involved… It’s been great for his confidence and shown him endless creative possibilities.’ Parent feedback

FOUR OF SWORDS co-founders Phil and Sarah are joined on FILM SCHOOL by local educator and film-maker Jon Seal, as well as a host of other talented individuals. Previous collaborators include: Charlie Coldfield from Wandering Tiger, Ashley Thorpe from Carrion Films and Ed Jobling from Forkbeard Fantasy.

FILM SCHOOL activities include:

  • Writing / Story-boarding / Devising
  • Set / Costume / Make-up Design
  • Acting!
  • Camera Operation / Editing
  • Green Screen Work / Animation

But mostly, of course, it is always enormous fun!

Inspired by the 2,400 year old proto-horror epic masterpiece by Sophocles, brought shuddering & spluttering to visceral life, in typical FOUR OF SWORDS stylee, we are proud to present, with the generous support of ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND:

FOUR OF SWORDS’ OEDIPUS
1st-18th May 2019
7pm (couple of extra shows at 9pm)
BEER QUARRY CAVES, Seaton EX12 3AT
Tickets £15

The legendary riddle-master Oedipus does battle with the crafty Sphinx! He gains the crown of Thebes, and wins the hand in marriage of its mighty queen, Jocasta. Fast forward to the future, and Thebes is once more under threat: not from a supernatural beast like the Sphinx, but a pestilence which shall not be abated until the murderous criminal harboured in the city’s midst is exposed. Oedipus is determined to fulfil his kingly duty, to hunt out this criminal, and to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit, regardless of the consequences…!

This is an immersive, promenade (walking) theatre show. As with previous FOUR OF SWORDS productions, audiences will be standing and walking for the duration of the 1 hour 15 min show. Please wear sensible footwear, warm clothing and bring a torch to help you find your way to and from the car! Please be advised that this show is too creepy for under 11s.
