Game Changers

Are you creative? Do you have an interest in film or photography? Want to make that passion into a career someday. Do you dream of starting your own business but don’t know where to start? You may be thinking surely none of that is possible in Swindon. Well think again.


Study Higher, in conjunction with Create Studios, are looking for 18 Year 12 students to take part in an exciting new FREE project called Game Changers.

You will spend five days during the summer break getting to grips with both the world of film and the dynamic world of business. You’ll get the chance to document your journey across the week, becoming both director, script writer, and film maker of your own film. In small groups you will be set the task of making a documentary to tackle head on the question you may all have asked at some point - why should young, talented, ambitious people stay in Swindon? By the end of the project you’ll not only know the answer but you’ll be able to confidently present your film to friends and family at a screening event organised by you.


You’ll get to visit a number of local businesses, meeting young Swindon based entrepreneurs. You’ll get to know how they got to be where they are and why they chose Swindon. The activities will range from a gig at Darkroom Espresso to lunch at a local edible garden. Through the medium of film you’ll learn how to make the most out of your potential without having to travel the country or the globe to get there. Whether it be a degree, an apprenticeship, an NVQ or work experience, Swindon has far more to offer than you might think. . .

The project will be run over a week from July 16th – July 20th 2018. The hours may vary from day to day but if a late finish is required a late start will be planned to compensate.
