The Magic of Film in Scotland with Go Beyond Holidays

The Magic of Film

Go Beyond Gets Creative on Film

26th September – 3rd October 2024

What's to get excited about!

Are you someone who loves to act? Perhaps you enjoy writing stories? Have you always wanted to make a documentary?

This holiday will give you the opportunity to make a short film which we plan to get shown on the big screen. The setting is Royal Deeside, in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Ballater, in the heart of The Cairngoms National Park, in the eastern Highlands of Scotland, is where we will be based. Surrounded by the mountains, rivers, lochs, gothic buildings and castles, in colourful autumn, the perfect backdrop for any film.

We are also minutes from Balmoral Castle, an official royal residence.

We are asking you to come up with an idea for a film, which, as a group, we will write, plan and film, with the help from a professional.

Will we film a short documentary? A subject of your choosing, like the Royal family or local history? Or will we film a story? A romance action film or a science fiction comedy?

The choice is yours.
