One Minute Filmmaking Project

  • The Nursery Training Centre 6th Floor, Capital House Weston Street, London SE1 3QD (map)

Want to get experience on a short film production? Join us in making a short film from scratch, cast and crewed entirely by people looking to get experience on a shoot! One of the best ways to learn filmmaking is to go out and shoot - we're here to help make that happen.

The challenge is to create a one-minute short film with no budget in a month. Have a look at our last project here:


Whether you're interested in directing, acting or editing, there'll be a role for you. All we ask is that you make yourself available on the dates below for pre-production meetings and the shoot itself. 

Saturday 24 March - Meet & greet, brainstorm
Saturday 31 March - Get script ready, rehearse
Saturday 7 April - Get familiar with equipment
Saturday 14 April - Shooting day

All of our meetings will take place during the day. There may be other tasks to do outside of those meetings. After the shoot, the film will go straight into post-production and be completed by Tuesday 24 April. We will then screen the final film at one of our future events where you'll get the chance to do a Q&A.

The roles are first come, first served, so don't delay in booking the role you want! The project itself is free to join but there is a small booking fee of £10 to help cover the costs towards meeting rooms, food expenses, interpreters, etc. It also minimises the chance of last-minute dropouts. This is a great opportunity for those who are starting out or looking to get more active in filmmaking.

As always, we aim to make our screenings and workshops accessible to people with hearing loss - if you need a BSL interpreter, please let us know when booking or you can email us.

No one turned away for lack of funds
If for any reason, you are unable pay the fee but really want to join us, we won't turn you away! Just send us a private message to tell us what role you're interested in and we'll go from there (you'll have to be quick, if the role is already taken, we can't give you the spot).

How to get there: Nearest station is London Bridge.
