Film Making Elective Course (Available in St. Andrews Only):
Students choose one academic subject and one elective subject to study during their 3-week stay. At St. Andrews, students have the opportunity to take a film making course as an elective subject. The academic subjects that can be taken alongside this course are Creative Writing, Debating, English Language Course, International Baccalaureate (IB) Preparation Programs or Youth Leadership.
r film making course allows our students to discover the fascinating world of film-making and let their imaginations run free. Throughout the course, students of all ability levels will benefit from expert tuition on script writing, directing, production management, cinematography and editing right through to location scouting and set design. Armed with this knowledge, students will then create their very own short films to be screened in front of the entire summer school.
Each student will also receive instruction in the use of top of the line Sony HD digital cameras and learn to edit with Final Cut Pro 5. Working in small teams, students will then learn to work within a production crew taking turns to direct, produce and film their own unique films.

- Immerse yourself in the process of film-making
- Benefit from professional guidance and instruction
- Learn to use industry standard equipment
- Discover the excitement of seeing your ideas come to life
