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!
