Live in West London and interested in film, technology, and storytelling?

The Lyric Hammersmith Theatre and the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA) are looking for young people aged 16 – 21 who live in West London to take part in a free one week Summer School in August, taking place at LAMDA. 

Led by Framesync, the cohort will take part in practical sessions, exploring LAMDA’s LED Volume, how to build 3D environments, camera technique and operation, lighting for film and stage managing a Virtual Production set. After a series of masterclasses, our cohort will work together to create and operate a short project, filmed in the Virtual Production Studio. The final product will then be edited by the team at LAMDA, and given to participants at the end of the project! No previous experience in Film, Technical Production or Theatre is required to take part, just an interest in learning more about technology and virtual production.

We are particularly interested in hearing from young people from the global majority, young people who are D/deaf and disabled, young people from low-income households (measured by access to Free School Meals in the last six years) and young people in care/care leavers as we recognise these groups are currently underrepresented in the technical theatre industries. Lunch will be provided to participants throughout the project.

In order to apply, you must fulfil all the following criteria: 

  • Be aged 16 – 21 at the time of application 
  • Must be able to travel to LAMDA for a session (W14 9DA, closest underground station Barons Court)
  • Live anywhere in West London
    • Applications will be prioritised for those who currently live in one of the following boroughs – Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kensington and Chelsea, Richmond Upon Thames, Wandsworth and Westminster 
  • Be able to commit to attending and completing the entire one-week programme: 
  • Monday 12 August 11am – 4pm
  • Tuesday 13 August 10am – 4pm
  • Wednesday 14 August 10am – 4pm
  • Thursday 15 August 10am – 4pm
  • Friday 16 August 10am – 5pm
