What is Shine Studios? At Shine Performing Arts we recognise our older children may wish to focus on all aspects of television and film industry, which supports the GCSE syllabus.

We have introduced Shine Studios with more specialised sessions focusing on television, film, acting, presenting and journalistic interviewing techniques.  

The techniques include self taping and audition practice.We focus in depth on script writing, lighting, production, editing and directing.

Shine film studio aim to introduce students into performing and creating own personal documentaries, talk shows and comedies. 

We encourage students to work towards producing their own films, which can be entered into film festivals
