Filmsteps Teddington is a film-making school run by Caroline Jeffries, a professional TV Director with 20 years of TV industry experience (Eastenders, Byker Grove, Grange Hill, The Bill, Casualty, Ab Fab and many other comedy and drama programmes).
Combining experience-based tuition, fun exercises and hands-on film-making, the course encourages creativity and self-expression as well as building confidence and teamwork skills in new and exciting ways.
The term time students have so far learnt how to produce and direct their own news reports, music videos, movie trailers, documentaries and many more. All of the students work can be viewed on their very own online TV station www.filmstepstv.com – here’s one example for a fund-raising telethon from the Teddington crew.
Due to the outstanding success of Filmsteps term time film school, 7-16 years olds can now write, produce, direct and shoot their own mini feature film in a week during the holidays.
