Pilot is an Experimental 5-Day Junior Film Camp for 7-14 year-olds designed to get their hands on REAL film-making.

Based in North Tonbridge and run by the team of industry professionals, it's a carefully crafted project for creative young children, teaching them the latest and current film production methods.

As Film & TV industry professionals, we often work on short features (pilots) testing audience reaction with a view to the production of a series. 

Pilot is our passion project, we are building something new and exciting, together with your talented children in Kent. 




Our Vision 

Pilot Film camp is designed to be personal.

To work, stories that will end up on screen will require personal reflection so we decided to limit the camp capacity, so we can have smaller groups with subdivided activities ensuring each and every child gets one to one time with us and has the chance to try everything we offer. 

 We also would like to highlight the importance of commitment to the whole week please.


This is a structured (and fun) five-day event, that is geared towards the ambitious goal of making three films.


Five days isn't long enough time to finish the full cycle of production in real life, but it gives each child a taster of the exciting and busy atmosphere of a film set. Each of our young crew members plays a vital part.

Local Community

If you are a local business and would like to sponsor

our camp places, please get in touch. 

All sponsorship money will go into the Pilot Scholarship.

We believe that creative arts should be available to all children from all backgrounds.

Your sponsorship will fully pay for a place or subsidise a child whose family don't have the financial opportunity to pay for camps. 

Check out out first camp's Sponsor 

the amazing Tonbridge Old Fire Station 

The sponsorship funds covered the cost of the whole week for a 9 year-old Theo I. from Sevenoaks who won the competition we ran back in December 2023.

Your business will be always be featured on the front page of our website and your support is extremely appreciated by us and the local families.
