Students who participate in the camp will work together to write, direct and produce their own short film. Galway Film Centre will provide equipment and tutors to facilitate the camps. At the end of the five days, students will have completed a short film which can then be screened in the school for students and staff and possibly, the parents.
Ireland has a thriving audiovisual sector that has continued to grow steadily in the last 20 years. Career prospects in the creative industries are at an all-time high and it can now offer students of today a healthy and prosperous career path. It is hoped that the camps will spark a passion in students to pursue a career in the creative industries.
