Happy to find out the my after school class on Movie Making at Harrison Park Elementary is sold out!
This will be the 3rd year of volunteering to teach fourth and fifth graders movie making. It’s always a great time. I love the questions I get. Last year one of the kids asked me, “Are you famous?” I responded, “My parents think I am.”
This year I’ll be teaching kids that they don’t need super-fancy equipment to make a movie. With mom’s cell phone and their Nintendo DS now having build in camcorders there are a number of inexpensive ways to make a movie. I’ll be having students write out a quick movie idea, storyboard a shot from their movie, list equipment and actors they need and get them on a path that they can make their own movie that weekend.
