Film Camps

The phrase “Film Camp” does not come close to describing the professional industry experience we offer at Act 2 Cam.

Too often, on a “film camp”, young actors and filmmakers are let down by a lack of professional equipment and industry expertise. Many of our competitors field staff who lack experience and skills to work effectively with young people or make high quality films. 

We are not your average film camp. At Act 2 Cam, our industry experts and qualified teachers work to create a professional filmmaking environment, building skills and confidence, crafting excellent films.

So whether you’ve been on another drama camp before, or whether this is your first time, at Act 2 Cam you can be sure you will make your best film yet.

Harrogate Shoot (ages 11-17)

5th to 11th August & 12th to 18th August, 2018

Harrogate Ladies College is in a quiet, safe residential area of Harrogate, a few minutes’ walk from the cosmopolitan town centre, and a short drive from the stunning North Yorkshire countryside which will form the backdrop for our film location.

Summer camp members can specialise in:

  • Screen-acting
  • Filmmaking
  • Costume design
  • Special effects makeup
  • Composing for film
  • Editing
  • Stopmotion Animation

After learning their craft, young people work in teams, in their chosen field, turning superb scripts into high quality films.

The films from our Harrogate 2018 shoot will be showcased at a leading regional cinema, released commercially and entered into film festivals world-wide.

This unique Summer camp provides the amazing opportunity to work with like-minded people, learn essential industry skills and create a professional quality showreel material.

Check out the amazing location and accommodation on the school's own website:

We have residential and non-residential options available, with options to stay for either week, or both weeks.

What's more, because we are a registered childcare provider, we accept childcare vouchers as payment. If you are eligible for child tax credits, you can also get up to 70% off the price of the course!

York Shoot (for ages 18+)

20th to 24th August, 2018 

We have secured a superb, exclusive venue in York, for our Summer 2018 film location. This is an immersive film shoot experience, designed to make a movie masterpiece!

We intend this film to be our showcase piece, and are looking for just 6 dedicated actors and 6 fantastic filmmakers who really want to up their game.

We will “hit the ground running”, filming from the off, in the knowledge that our attendees already have skills and experience in screen-acting and filmmaking. The whole experience will be dedicated to making the best film possible in the time allowed. 

To this end, we will be asking actors to audition for their parts beforehand. We will also audit our filmmakers’ skills, so that we have the right people in the right roles as soon as we begin.
