Young Filmmakers

Don't be bored once school's out! Have fun, meet new friends in a safe creative environment. Come to the Galway Film Centre and make your own movies during our Animation and Live Action Drama camps!

The Galway Film Centre runs 'Animation' and 'Live Action Drama' Camps, during Halloween, Easter and Summer holidays from 10am and 3.30pm, Monday to Friday, at Cluain Mhuire on the Wellpark Road.

This is an exciting way for young filmmakers to explore creative story-telling and visual imagery using the Animation apps and iPad technology. The tutor will show participants how to create their own images and characters and transform their drawings into a short animated film.

This covers the creative and technical demands of storytelling using moving images to dramatic effect. As a group, you will script your own drama, shoot the scenes, act, direct, crew and edit a short film under the guidance of a professional filmmaker.

The films made during both film camps each year are submitted to the Junior Galway Film Fleadh and the Limerick Fresh Film Festival.
