About the Book:

Kids Guide To Movie Making is a book for today's creative, technically savvy child who just needs the tools to set them on their journey of making their own feature film. For children who love acting, film making, and the performing arts, Kids Guide To Movie Making is a middle grade, nonfiction activity book that provides them with the how-to's they need to make compelling movies with strong characters and stories audiences will enjoy.

Over the years in neighbourhoods across North America, children have formed their own private "theater companies," 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.

With Kids Guide To Movie Making, children will have the 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.
