What you'll do

We guide you through all the stages of making a short film – from working on the script, to directing you as an actor - whether you want it as a curio to amuse friends or a serious first step in a new career. Before you arrive we will discuss your idea with you, and help you to write a draft script, or part of the script, or outline of the idea. We will then turn it into a workable shooting script. If you want a film with only you and your party in it then book as a Private Group. When you arrive we will decide shots, set ups - how to approach actually filming the scenes. Then we rehearse, making sure your performances are right for the type of film you're aiming at. You'll learn about how to perform in front of a camera – its not maybe what you think! Then comes shooting, the exciting, demanding, strange experience of the art of illusion! No matter how little idea you have of what to do at first, you' ll be surprised how convincing we can make you look and perform. You'll see “rushes”, raw footage of your days work. When the shooting and your stay is over we do the post production, basically editing, adding any effects or processing to get the desired look and sound, plus titles and credits. Then we deliver to you a broadcast-quality film

Gregory

After working for 30 years in theatre, (I have had 30 plays produced or published) as a writer and also as a director, both here and abroad, I then started working with film. I have just finished making three films, for Two Cities Films, the film company that produced some of the best British films of the 1940s. As a playwright I had productions at, among other places, The Royal Court, Riverside Studios, and in Europe, notably at the Comedie Francaise, the Theatre de L'Odeon ( the National Theatre of Europe) & the Conservatoire where I taught directing. I have worked with some of the best actors over 25 years in Britian and abroad but am also experienced in filming with non actors. Co-host Lotta Kjellberg, has co-produced three films for Two Cities Films.

Where you'll be

We will shoot in a beautiful Georgian house. It lends itself very well to period, it is great for that, and has been used for that.People find the house strongly atmposheric, it's perfect for horror, but you can of course shoot a non-period story there. We will shoot mainly in the house, but if we need a few moments of outside shots, there is a street, a beach, a station etc. Bear in mind each camera set up takes more time than you'd imagine.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 5 guests ages 21 and up can attend.

What to bring

It can be useful if you bring roughly what you expect to wear in the scenes, but we do have a costume department

More tips

You dont need ANY experience of acting, (or writing of course). We will do as much of the scripting as is needed, and we are used to non-actors and helping them how be on camera.
