Course Description

Your Oxford Summer School experience will take place in historic residential colleges where you will get a taste of what it's like to be a student at Oxford. Sleep in historic quadrangles, mingle in bustling student common areas, and unwind in beautiful campus gardens. Take a seat in the lofty hallways where students have dined for over 800 years. Learn in lecture halls and labs where revolutionary discoveries were created, and in classrooms where 55 Nobel Laureates gained fundamental academic and life skills essential for future success.

On location at the University of Oxford, shoot, edit, and show your own short film. You will get insights into film production and digital editing as you experience first-hand what it is like to develop a film using Oxford University as your set—the filming location for numerous sequences in the Harry Potter films.

Make use of top-of-the-line video production gear, such as HD cameras and professional sound and lighting instruments. As you go through the post-production stages of your film with Final Cut Pro, you may hone your digital editing abilities. As you immerse yourself in screenplay, location scouting, storyboarding, and digital editing, you'll have the opportunity to network with film industry experts. Improve your ability to think creatively, write technical documents, and manage projects.

The following are some of the things you will learn in this course:

  • Produce and edit a short video to be screened at Oxford and added to your resume.
  • Explore the power of film's distinctive visual language while learning the fundamentals of filmmaking, such as production, editing, and scripting.
  • Scriptwriting and editing, location scouting, camera handling, sound, lighting, and directing are just a few of the vocations available in the film industry.
  • Filmmaking equipment such as HD cameras and post-production software such as Final Cut Pro can help you improve your technical abilities.

We know you'll want to tell your family, friends, and instructors about your fantastic summer of exploration when you go home. We also recognize that you'll want to learn from your ORA teacher not just what you did exceptionally well on your course, but also where you may improve and learn more in the future.

You'll get a graduation certificate after successfully completing your course, which will be presented to you and your parents at a special ceremony on the last Friday of summer school. We'll also provide you a full report card that details all you've accomplished throughout your time with us, as well as some recommendations for future success.
