Over the years in neighbourhoods across North America,

performing plays on makeshift stages with bed sheet curtains draped
over clotheslines. Nowadays, children still create their own plays,
but with easy to use video cameras, computer video editing software
and You Tube, children by the thousands are making and showing their
own movies too! That is why Shelley Frost developed the Make-A-Movie program. She has taught Make-A-Movie Workshops to several hundred
children at private and public schools, recreation departments and in
private homes. She has also booked dozens of Make-A-Movie birthday
parties and events involving over 1000 children.

opportunity to learn how to be a Movie Director on their own movie
set with easy to understand guidelines and descriptions. Throughout
the book are HOT TIPS! that will give the reader special insights
geared to making their movie production problem free. The final pages
are filled with helpful movie making materials such as sample
scripts, shooting schedules, storyboard layout and more.
