Geoff Thompson, Esther May Campbell and Tony Lawson will be working with teenagers as part of the Rural Media Company's British Film Institute (BFI) Film Academy
SOME of Britain’s leading filmmakers are to work with the Rural Media Company on its new workshop programme.
Geoff Thompson will be popping along on Thursday, October 31, while Tony Lawson and Esther May Campbell will be offering their services the following day.
The trio will be helping teenagers work on the British Film Institute (BFI) Film Academy that the Rural Media Company was awarded.
Geoff is the writer of award-winning Brown Paper Bag and Bouncer and Clubbed, while Tony has worked with some of the biggest directors in cinema, including Stanley Kubrick, Nicholas Roeg, Sam Peckinpah and Neil Jordan, and Esther’s short film September won 11 major international honours.
The aim of the film academy is to help train the next generation of British filmmakers and offers training for every film industry role.
“Coming to do a masterclass in Hereford and having the chance to share ideas with local film enthusiasts is a wonderful opportunity for me and I hope for the attendees on the BFI Academy,” said Esther.
“I’m very much looking forward to hearing about other practitioners’ processes, as well as having time to find out what interests and needs the attendees have.”
Anyone interested in taking part can apply up until Wednesday (Oct 16).
