Film School

Easter & Summer 2021 courses are a go!

Watch the trailer...

Our 2021 Film School courses are going ahead! Read on for more info about these great courses, and scroll down to see how we've adjusted our policies and structure in response to Covid-19.

At Zylo Film School, attendees write, direct and star in their own 20 minute films and then premiere them at a special online (Easter) or cinema (Summer) awards ceremony! Every week three groups supported by experienced tutors & editors create their films using professional cameras, a green screen for special effects and more. Attendees receive full HD downloads of all the films, a hilarious blooper reel and a certificate. Over the last eight years our Film Schools have helped over 1500 children create 180+ short films so we must be doing something right!

And they're REALLY fun! In fact we believe that they're the most fun (at the best price) that any young aspiring film actor, director, writer or... child... can have at a holiday course!

Each course is open to 6-14 year olds and runs for four days, concluding with a superb premiere on Saturday for filmmakers, family and friends!

COVID-19 MEASURES

We have made changes to the Film School course structure in line with the official government guidance and will continue to update our measures as new guidance is released. As evidenced by our awesome courses last Summer, these changes will not take away from the core course experience but they will help to keep children, staff and anyone else who comes into contact with the course safe. Here is an outline of changes and measures being implemented this year:

  • We have conducted a new Covid-19 risk assessment and are updating it frequently in line with any new guidance.
  • Each filmmaking group (up to 13 chidlren and 2 adults) will operate in a social bubble for the duration of the week. Groups will be determined on the morning of the first day.
  • Each bubble will have access to its own selection of indoor spaces. Access to outdoor spaces will be staggered or split.
  • Once determined, group arrival and collection times may be staggered.
  • Each child on the course will recieve a clear plastic bag with a name tag sticker in which to keep their prop & costume items when not in use.
  • Our staff Health & Safety training and procedures have been updated.
  • We will operate staggered break/lunch times OR designate specific recreational areas to each bubble.
  • We will operate an increased cleaning schedule, especially in spaces that must be shared such as toilets.
  • We have created new, clear behavioural/procedural guidelines for children.
  • We will not be able to operate cinema premieres this year. Therefore we will be running live online Zoom premieres! These will still include all the awards, speaches and bloopers!
