>> About Straight Curve and what we offer

Straight Curve understands that the film and television industry can be a fierce and competitive market to break into and we are here to help, encourage and inspire. Unlike other filmschools, we teach and nurture talented students that come our way and we have been involved in helping students in many short films that they have gone on to make following a Straight Curve workshop.

Straight Curve aims to help future moviemakers who need practical experience in the art of short movie making by providing high quality, varied and practical workshops, no matter how young or old it is never too soon or too late to start.

We provide a relaxed working environment in our offices just outside London and because we are not London based we are able to offer our services at highly competitive prices without compromising on the quality of our tutors. Our service goes beyond the norm, we do our best to put our students in touch with the right people, we offer advice and we network on behalf of our students to try and find them placements on future short movie projects. For those students based outside London we can offer friendly accommodation at reasonable prices giving eveyone the opportunity to join us no matter where they are based.


Our stable of workshops are growing all of the time, we can offer scriptwriting at beginner and intermediate levels, sound recording both mono and stereo, general filmmaking for the new filmmaker, make up for special effects, camera skills, editing on final cut pro and pretty much anything you ask us to!

We also offer a personalised service with bespoke one to one workshops. Created to suite your needs, schedule and budget.
