Student Films

This is a selection of films made at Embercombe by the young students on BIGetc Productions' Introduction to Film Making courses. The students devise the films themselves in supported groups working as small production teams. They direct, star in, shoot and when time allows also edit their films. Some of these are done over a three-day weekend course whereas younger groups do them in a single day!
