James Bond school BFI London
Calling all Young 007s! During the Easter holidays BFI will be running a training school at BFI Southbank for any prospective secret agents, aged 10+. Learn how the stunt masters make Bond fights look real, editors cut trailers, music is composed and scripts are developed and storyboarded… then try it out yourself!

Bond School runs for 4 days from Tuesday 14 - Friday 17 April and is £15 per day

- Scripts and Storyboards: 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 Comic Life. The workshop will run from 10-2pm followed by screening of a Bond classic in our Studio until 4pm.

- Stunts: 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 a Bond classic in our Studio until 4pm.

- Editing: 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 and Quantum of Solace, and we hope to be working with materials from a recent Bond film. Workshop from 10-2pm, followed by screening of a Bond classic in our Studio until 4pm.

- Composing: The James Bond theme is the single constant and most recognisable ingredient in the Bond recipe. In this workshop we’ll be working with partners Sibelius music and sound editing software to compose a soundtrack for a Bond sequence. No previous music experience is necessary, just a bit of imagination!

Tickets can be booked online, in person at BFI Southbank or by telephone from the BFI Box Office on 020 7928 3232.

If you have any queries please email: Children will be supervised throughout and will need a packed lunch. Certificates for all films screened will be 12, PG or 12A.
