FOR THE FALLEN
When the grass has grown over the battlefields, do we forget?
When the last gun is fired, do we forget?
When the last wound is healed, do we forget?
2014 is an important year. A hundred years ago the First World War began. At the time it was said to be the war to end all wars and now a century later, wars still rage across the globe.
We’re looking for the next generation of storytellers, those who can tackle the issues the war raised that are still prevalent today and look beyond to tell real stories about real lives past and present.
We’re running a series of master classes including writing, scriptwriting, directing, cinematography, editing & acting for those wishing to improve existing skills or looking to learn a complete new skillset
PLUS great bite sized chunks of World War One history designed to inspire and stimulate your imagination.
