It’s easy to get excited about horror films around October - but horror is for life, not just for Halloween.  

In partnership with Mayhem Horror Film Festival, Steven Shiel will be tutoring a Summer School with a difference.  Running from Monday 22 August to Friday 26 August and aimed at fifteen to eighteen year olds, what better way to keep out of trouble than honing some gory film skills. 

Steven as writer and director of Brit horror flick Mum and Dadand co-curator of Mayhem Film Festival, he’s a man who knows what he’s talking about.  The Making Horror Films Summer School offers a practical introduction to filmmaking including camerawork, lighting, sound recording, directing and editing so is pretty darned hands-on.  There will also be an insight into creating practical horror effects and sessions on getting those all important ideas and the process of screenwriting.
