October half term at JW3

Three day film course at JW3 for 5-7 and 8-11 year olds

We're back at JW3 this Autumn 1/2 term after 3 fantastic weeks over the Summer. 

In this three day film course, the children will write, shoot and screen their own short film. They'll be involved in casting, costume and set design, marketing, filming and acting. The course culminates in the first ever Infinite Jest/JW3 film festival and an award ceremony in front of friends and family.

Three days, run by Infinite Jest's highly experienced team of professionals, packed with fun and creativity where the children learn about team working, leadership, compromise, respect, effective communication and, with newly acquired skills, leave inspired and brimming with confidence.
