BUDDING film-makers who fancy themselves as the next Scorsese can learn the tricks of the trade this summer, thanks to a new course in Camden.
The scheme will offer intensive training in all aspects of film-making from scriptwriting and production to directing actors.
After the course, participants can apply for funding to make a short film, and will receive professional support to transform their ideas into a reality.
Aspiring film-maker Mumina Khatun took part in a similar course last year and her film, The Knowledge, about a female taxi driver working in King's Cross, was screened at The Renoir.
The 18-year-old said: "The course gave me a much greater knowledge of how the industry works, such as how to pitch ideas.
"I was interested in going into the film industry before, now I'm going to university to study film and TV."
