The National Youth Film and Animation School is the ideal pre-college course for any young person aged 16-19yrs thinking of a career or college placement in film or animation. 

With the camp going online due to Covid 19 restrictions this summer, we are aiming to provide young creatives with all the same industry masterclasses, interactive training workshops and collaborative spaces for students to work together as a creative team.  And at the end of the course they will have high quality work for their portfolio.  

You will be taking part in online interactive workshops with other young people, mentored by industry professionals and working collaboratively with others. Studio based tutorial livestreams and Q & A’s with well known faces in the industry. 

During these five days you will be put through your paces. With intensive training in everything from script breakdowns to camera & lighting, through to filming and post production. With professional level mentorship and masterclasses throughout the course.
