SFS Restarts Kids Saturday Film Shoots in London
London’s premier provider of filmmaking workshops for children, Studio Film School, has welcomed in the new school term with its unique Saturday Film Shoots. Set at locations across the capital, the weekly shoots give children the chance to expand their creativity and produce amazing films guided by specialist film workshop leaders who combine their film knowledge with fun and learning.
Filmmaking fun for all children and teens aged 4-19, SFS film shoots allows children to call the shots on their own film set, develop confidence, build new skills and make new friends every Saturday morning across the capital. Blending creative activity and digital technology, SFS is ideal for boys and girls with a variety of different interests. The unique workshop approach prioritises teamwork, democratic decision making and inclusion to ensure that every child is given the chance to shine and reach their full potential.
Dan Farrell, Director of Studio Film School said, “We are delighted that our doors have opened again for the new term. It is always an exciting time to meet new and returning students. Our workshops take place across many capital locations including Highgate, Chelsea, Balham and Hampstead.
“SFS gives children the chance to create their own unique films under the guidance of our incredibly skilled team. This enables skills development, an increase in confidence, the opportunity to make new friends, to take control over their own expression and to gain in independence, all in the course of a Saturday morning. It’s a great Saturday activity for inspiring creativity and teamwork – something we’re seeing less and less of within the national curriculum.”
Each new term focusses on a new theme, allowing students to develop their skills and creativity further with every session. All members progress through age tiers, with the technology developing alongside their skills base.
All SFS members work in age-tiered teams and oversee all projects from the beginning to the very end. Students work on every stage of a production including the writing, acting and filmmaking to give children a sense of ownership and achievement over their work.
Mr Farrell added, “Our classes are fun and educational for children, giving parents the peace of mind that their child is safe, happy and doing something worthwhile. Students are guaranteed to leave each session having learnt something new.”
