Who is it for?
The course is for 16-19 years olds in North Devon who are enthusiastic about film and want to learn the skills, knowledge and contacts to bring their stories to life. No previous experience necessary but a burning desire to work in the film industry is essential. Young people up to the age of 25 can apply if they have an Education Health Care Plan.
