Fu­ture Sur­rey stars

Surrey Life - - Upfront -

Sur­rey young­sters keen to break into the film in­dus­try were re­cently given a help­ing hand by The Bri­tish Film In­sti­tute (BFI). A group of 20 lo­cal young peo­ple took part in the BFI Film Academy, de­liv­ered by lo­cal com­pany Re­source Pro­duc­tions, at Shep­per­ton Stu­dios. Par­tic­i­pants got the chance to learn about all as­pects of filmmaking from script to screen, in­clud­ing prac­ti­cal work­shops with cam­era and edit­ing equip­ment, the op­por­tu­nity to shoot a short film and meet guest speak­ers from the film in­dus­try. The BFI says the Film Academy pro­gramme is a key part of its Film For­ever five-year plan to sup­port the fu­ture suc­cess of UK film.
