01 November 2012
Met Film School’s Top Tips for Young Filmmakers:
1. Get involved in as many creative projects as you can, either at school, independently or by joining external film groups
2. Don’t be afraid to just give it a go i.e. start writing scripts, shooting pieces on a cheap camera, experimenting with editing software online
3. Be proactive in taking filmmaking courses and seeking internships/work experience with production companies
4. Watch as many films as you can and watch the DVD extras to find out more about how they were made
Met Film School Young Filmmaker Programmes:
Met Film School is London’s leading provider of practical filmmaking programmes, based at Ealing Studios. They offer a range of courses for young filmmakers aged between 14 – 17 years old.
