Fun Summer Project: Movie Director Kids

This is a project I have been meaning to do with my kids for quite a while.


Here's is what I envision:

  1. Teach them how to use a web cam.
  2. Help them choose an object to star in the films: action figure, stuffed animal, plastic dinosaurs, etc.
  3. Help them come up with a simple story line: super hero saving innocent people, time travel, detective series...
  4. Coach them on keep each "take" nice and short, best day to film, etc.
  5. Find an app or online program to splice together the weekly films.
  6. Teach them how to post and share on You Tube or some other publishing space.
This fun summer project will help inspire your budding movie directors, lighting and sound geniuses, and all of those talented actors and singers out there!  Plus, so many lessons can be built into the nuts and bolts behind the scenes!!

Have a great summer.
