To support the UK wide BBC Get Creative campaign, we have brought together a range of opportunities to help our members continue to embrace filmmaking on the first Get Creative Day (2 April) and beyond. The day itself marked a successful year of the project, which aims to inspire people to explore the fun opportunities to make things in their local areas and beyond. Here our filmmaking resources will do just that, in and out of the classroom.

We've compiled the best advice from a host of film industry professionals including Academy Award-winner Ron Howard, Aardman Animations and director Steve Martino. Covering many ways to bring your story to life, advice covers how to get started behind a camera, blending sound into your film and how to add emotion to animation. To put these top tips to the test, a selection of corresponding resources are available to download and help you get started.

To further bring filmmaking directly to young people, a series of sessions to introduce the art will be taking place around the UK and we'll be sharing stories and pictures on our Twitter channel afterwards. What's more in Merthyr, Wales our teams held animation sessions for primary school children in Dowlais.

As well as Into Film, hundreds of organisations across the UK including Culture at King's, Voluntary Arts, 64 Million Artists, Fun Palaces, Cultural Learning Alliance and Arts Council England are involved.
