About Reel Education

Reel Education is an exciting new initiative from The Reel Team that provides secondary schools and colleges with practical, skills-based filmmaking workshops.

Our range of bespoke workshops offer students the opportunity to engage with film in a unique and valuable way, supporting student development both within the curriculum and beyond.

We do all the legwork for you, and our workshops are specially designed to ensure that you don't need lots of equipment to be able to get involved.

We're supported by a roster of amazing industry partners, including the BFI Future Film, Channel 4, Raindance and Kodak.

Our workshops can be used to support your existing teaching, or to offer students something completely new.  We ensure that everything we deliver is well matched to your students' needs, and accessible to all students involved.

Prices start at just £149, so to find out more about the ways we could educate, inspire and engage your students email us at

Available Workshops

All workshops are bespoke and tailored to your school's individual needs.

See some examples of recommended workshop topics below.

Filmmaking and Storytelling

An introduction to the art of storytelling.  Enables students to identify narrative elements in their own favourite films and gives them the tools to start creating their own.

Growth of Guerrilla Filmmaking

Engages with the phenomenon of mobile filmmaking.  Includes an exploration of the opportunities it presents, examples, practical exercises, low budget kit hacks and more. 

Introduction to Sound Design & Foley

Provides an insight into the often-overlooked world of sound and foley.  With the help of a group exercise, students learn to appreciate and engage with what they hear as much as what they see in film.

"A really comprehensive introduction to the topic.  We all took a ton of notes away of things to implement in our own work.  It was great to hear about The Reel Team's own experiences and the workshop was really engaging from start to finish"
"Influential... enlightening... a fresh taste... informative... exciting... inspirational... a genuine insight in to the industry"
"An absolutely wonderful day.  Great workshop on visual storytelling with some useful tips and tricks for using low-tech to achieve fantastic results.  Everyone was really happy with what they created - all my students went home satisfied and enthused."
