Facility will be the UK’s first university film school to be housed within a fully functional commercial film studio.
Twickenham Studios is set to open its doors to aspiring film-makers.
The Lincoln Film School at Twickenham will be the first university film school to be housed within a fully functional commercial film studio when it launches in September.
It will offer industry-leading programmes of study for film-makers, media professionals and recent graduates, and will be steered by an expert advisory board with members including Angela Rippon OBE, former VP of Warner Brothers Pictures Rick Senat and ITV’s Ian Squires.
Led by Brian Hall, senior lecturer in film production at the University of Lincoln, and Maria Walker, COO at Twickenham Studios, the School will offer an intensive 20-week Practical Film Making course along with a series of short courses in specialist skills.
The Lincoln Film School is backed by the likes of the BFI, Arri Camera & Lighting Rental and the British Kinematograph Sound and Television Society.
Hall commented: “Twickenham Studios has an extraordinary heritage – having played host to figures such as The Beatles and Richard Attenborough – and I can’t think of anywhere more inspiring or better equipped to teach the art of film making.”
“There is no better way to learn than through practical experience. A course that offers an opportunity to work within a studio environment will expose a student to the real world of film-making and film-makers,” added Walker.
