SFS

poster smallSUMMER FILM SCHOOL is a project for young people produced in partnership between FOUR OF SWORDS, EXETER PHOENIX and Exeter-based film production company COLOURBURN.

The film school took twenty-odd 10-13 year olds and worked intensively with them over the course of a week, guiding them through each stage of the film-making process: from script-writing to set-building and costume-design, through to acting and filming, and taking in a bit of animation and shadow-puppetry along the way. The project took place at POLTIMORE HOUSE, and as always we are indebted to their hospitality, their flexibility, and their keenness to accommodate!

The resultant movie, entitled BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE POLTIMORE is now available online for your perusal and delectation – see below, or scroll down for some wonderful photos by Elliot Butler.

SFS2016 has been confirmed as going ahead. Details on booking will be released as soon as we have them. You might like to sign up to our mailing list to make sure you don’t miss out! Contact phil@four-of-swords.com

Just as Summer time is flourishing on the earth, FOUR OF SWORDS desires to lead you into the underworld of BEER QUARRY CAVES for their own unique and blood-curdling version of The Scottish!

This subterranean production is a reprisal of FOUR OF SWORDS’ hit 2014/16 show, and presents the Witches as Viking priestesses and goddesses of Destiny who guide the audience through the labyrinthine caverns of Macbeth’s homicidal ambition. The show features Shamanic techniques, haunting live music, gruesome film projections, Icelandic chanting, a splash or two of gore and even some Highland sword-dancing.

The company deserve huge applause – there were strong performances all round with too many stand-out moments to describe.
Anna Marks, Remotegoat

The connected caves – complete with bats – echo with a constant drip-drip-drip, perfectly conjuring the chill dankness of a medieval Scottish castle.
Belinda Dillon, Exeunt Magazine

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.
