The Future Filmmakers Gap Year Programme is a 10 week filmmaking course centred on the creation of an original short film: written, produced and directed by the students. Yarnton Manor is a ready-made film set teeming with creative inspiration: ORA students have the unique opportunity to live and shoot their film in the historic Jacobean Estate.
Starting with the script, the course is divided up into a number of learning modules that cover all aspects of the filmmaking process and run parallel with the development and production of the film.
As well as learning about the creative, technical and management processes involved in producing a film, the students will also be introduced to the business of film – discovering just how the industry works in terms of funding, marketing, distribution and sales.
The students will also get the opportunity to work alongside professional actors and crew, thereby giving them an invaluable and immersive understanding of how a film is produced. The Programme aims to provide students with the first steps to a successful film career as well as a high-quality short film suitable for portfolio or as an industry calling card. Whether they go onto higher education or straight into the business, students leave Oxford Royale Academy with a concrete skill-set and proven filmmaking experience.
