With this year's Easter holiday BFI Southbank is offering young people (aged 10-14) a chance to discover the behind-the-scenes world of James Bond. Learn to stunt fight like 007, how to cut a trailer, how to compose a Bond theme tune and how to develop and storyboard a Bond script. Places are limited so book fast.
Tuesday 14th April - Script and storyboarding with Kwame Lestrade. We take a scenario from a Bond film and together script a scene from it, then construct a storyboard using the programme Comic Life. The workshop will run from 10-2pm followed by screening of a Bond classic in the Studio until 4pm.
Wednesday 15th April - Stunt workshop with Alasdair Monteith of the London Stunt School and friends. Alasdair will look at contrasting ways of arranging and filming fights, then after practising and filming some simple moves, we'll prepare and shoot a fight sequence based on a scene from a Bond film. Workshop from 10-2pm, then screening of another Bond classic.
Thursday 16th April - Editing Bond. Our partners Film Education and PPC will take you through the process of cutting a trailer for a Bond release. PPC have made promotional trailers for Casino Royale (2006) and Quantum of Solace (2008), and we hope to be working with materials from a recent Bond film. Workshop from 10-2pm, followed by screening of a Bond classic.
Friday 17th April - Composing Bond. The James Bond theme is the single constant and most recognisable ingredient in the Bond recipe. In this workshop we'll be working with music and sound editing software to compose a soundtrack for a Bond sequence. No previous music experience is necessary, just a bit of imagination! Workshop from 10-2pm, then screening of a Bond classic until 4pm.
