& School Holiday Workshops
We’ve taken our workshops as far north as Tom Price and as far south as Hopetoun.
Our workshops can run for one hour or 5 days.
We can come to you, or you are welcome to bring your students to our Studio in Malaga, complete with rehearsal rooms, a computer studio and Green Screen room with its own infinity wall.
Our instructors are industry professionals who build a fabulous rapport with the students, and all have a working with children check.

Wether it’s 1 hour, 1 day or 1 week – our workshops are flexible and applicable to students between the ages of 7 – 18.
Our workshops aim to impart a passion and appreciation of the arts, arming the students with real tools which they can then take with them to keep creating their own stories outside of class.
Our instructors are specialised screen professionals with a passion for working with youth armed with courses and curriculum that is are tailored towards kids and young people. All of our staff hold Working with Children Checks.
In the past, Filmbites has worked with;
“PEAC students had so much fun while developing a wide range of drama skills in their screen acting course. The Filmbites instructor had a high level of expertise and she engaged and challenged students while providing a safe environment for them to take risks and get out of their comfort zone.”
Donna Wilson, PEAC North
“The organisation and planning was seamless, Peta maintained constant communication during the process to ensure the program was designed to meet our outcomes.
The delivery of the program itself has also been faultless. Jessica is so great with the kids and her passion, enthusiasm and skills in this field shine through every session. The sessions include a variety of activities to encourage young people to work both in groups and independently as well as learning theory and getting active with hands on experience.
We have received nothing but positive feedback from the young people and parents involved in the sessions. The program has provided a variety of great outcomes for our local young people and would be well received amongst all ages across the City of Wanneroo. Thanks.”

“I just wanted to say a quick thank you for attending our Combo Camp! We showed the video at the end of camp and everyone was laughing and so amazed and what you were able to edit and put together. It really was a new and exciting activity for the kids and one which a lot of them really enjoyed.
We also had great feedback about the effort and positive energy you put into encouraging and assisting each group, so thank you again.”

“We have found the workshops to be highly engaging, interactive and fun. The students really look forward to them and love showing off their handiwork after each session.”
Perth Modern School
“Jess was extremely professional in every detail of her workshop. From arriving in plenty of time, being flexible with needing to move venue last minute, to her delivery and ability to relate to the students.
The 12 students enjoyed every second of the 2 hour workshop and we would definitely like to hold one again. The information was appropriately aimed and delivered, at primary school students. Jess was enthusiastic, clear and supportive with her instructions and feed back. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.”
Claire Munday, West Leederville PS
“Overall, I really enjoyed the animated scene workshops. The different animating techniques we learnt were very interesting and fun to be taught about, and Lyam Overington was an amazing instructor who was willing to engage us on both a teaching and a personal level, which made the two days a lot of fun. Really enjoyed this workshop and would recommend it to the students participating in the 9ArtsFest next year!”
