Creative teenagers in Sheffield are certainly making the most of the last week of the summer holidays when they took part in a four-day film school.

The group of 12 to 16 year olds are taking part in Far North Film’s Summer Film School at the Easy Street Academy unit at the Nursery Works, off Little London Road.

Sessions included acting, directing, filming, sound recording and editing before creating a film of their own which they will show to their parents on Friday.

Toby Watts, director of Far North Film, said: “It’s going really well. We have got nine youths working on diferent films. We talk them through all the process in worksops and then put them into groups to make a film.

“The kids have beengreat. These young people have really thrown themselves into it and they’ve had great fun doing it too. We’ve been able to mess around with special effects and fake blood and they’ve loved it.”
