What to expect from our Taster Days

7th May 2024

Wondering what you can expect from your upcoming Taster Day? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Our Taster Days

It’s not long now before we open our doors and welcome our applicants to step behind the curtain and experience a day in the life of a Screen and Film School student.

Have you ever imagined yourself calling the shots on set, capturing the perfect frame, or penning a screenplay that grips audiences? Our Taster Days are designed to give you a taste of what it’s like to do it for real.

Your Taster Day is a great chance to see our facilities whilst also taking part in fun workshops. These workshops are meant to give you a taste of what it’s like to study with us. You get to see our lecturer’s’ style of teaching and, most importantly, get to know our lecturers and feel comfortable in the space before joining us in September.

But this day isn’t just about observing from the sidelines – it’s about rolling up your sleeves and getting hands-on with the craft.

What to expect

You’ll kick off the day with a warm welcome and an overview of what’s in store. We’ll break the ice with a lighthearted quiz to get those creative wheels turning. Then, it’s time to dive into the nitty-gritty of filmmaking with our expert-led workshops.

Whether it’s exploring the art of capturing the perfect shot, unravelling the mysteries of film business and production, learning how to dress a set, or delving into the world of sound design, there’s something for everyone. Plus, don’t forget to refuel with some delicious pizza on us before diving back into the action.

Ask The Experts

Our Industry Panel brings together special guests from the world of film to share their insights and experiences. From industry trends to career advice, you’ll gain valuable knowledge to kickstart your filmmaking journey.

Throughout the day, our Student Ambassadors will be your guides, sharing their experiences and answering any questions you may have about life at Screen and Film School. Whether you’re curious about our Brighton, Birmingham, or Manchester campus, they’ve got you covered.

Meet Your Future Collaborators

Taster Days aren’t just about getting a taste of what your future studies entail; they’re also golden opportunities to connect with the people who will journey alongside you throughout your degree.

From fellow classmates to potential lifelong friends and collaborators, these events provide the perfect setting to start forging those essential connections. When classes commence in September, having familiar faces around you can ease those first-day jitters and create a sense of camaraderie from the start.

Register now!

By the end of the day, you’ll not only have a deeper understanding of what it takes to succeed in the film industry but also a sense of whether Screen and Film School is the right fit for you. So come join us and take the first step towards turning your filmmaking dreams into reality. We can’t wait to welcome you!
