Calling all young film makers in Galway City and County!

Is there a budding Stephen Spielberg or Kathryn Bigelow in the family?
Clapperboard Junior Film School might be the answer..

StageSchool Ireland has introduced a ground breaking young film making course as ongoing weekly programmes under Clapperboard Junior Film School.

See our exciting 3 minute debut film here! Written, edited and filmed completely by the students under tuition. We think for the average age of 14 years old, they did a wonderful job and their parents should be proud!

Now in it’s second year, this original and new film class (designed over three ten week terms) will commence in Scoil Bhride, Shantalla Rd on Saturday afternoons from September 30th to December 9th with respected film media tutor, Gar O’Brien of The Galway Film Fleadh and cinematography classes from Peadar Mac Donnacha.

These exciting classes are a great way for young people to gain intensive and practical training behind the camera and in all aspects of film history, animation and production. With personalised SMALL classes of 14 students, these weekly sessions provide specific instruction are educationally enriching and great fun.

Clapperboard is suitable for 11 to 18 year old students to learn more of what it takes to succeed behind the camera. It will suit boys and girls as a fun, extra curricular activity and those who may wish to study film or a media related degree at third level.
