    This review is from: Movie Maker: The Ultimate Guide to Making Films (Hardcover)

    Designed for elementary-aged children, the MOVIE MAKER includes everything, minus a camera and a computer, that a young filmmaker needs to make a movie. There’s a 48-page director’s handbook that goes through a step by step process from preproduction to the actual screening of the finished movie. The book explains all the basic terms and techniques of filmmaking from “location” to “narrative tension” and from “tilt” to “pan”. The book also has sections specifically dealing with fiction, documentary, and animation. Besides the director’s handbook, MOVIE MAKER also includes a CD with 99 sound effects; several sheets of push-out costumes and props, e.g. fake watches and mustaches; tattoo stickers; a storyboard; a build-it-yourself push-out robot for a stop-motion movie; stickers for the director’s chair; stars for the actors’ dressing rooms; and tickets for the premiere of the movie. In addition, the front of the box that the kit comes in is a working clapper-board that (as long as chalk is used) can be used over and over. This is a great kit for any child who has an interest in movies. As long as they have access to a camera of some sort and a computer for editing, they have all the basics they need to make their own movies. I’d recommend have an adult “on set” as a production advisor who could also be the “executive producer” and oversee the editing of the movie.

    I use this to teach movie making to my group of kids. They love it and the cd of sound effects was very handy. Great purchase!

    I looked at this before giving this to my son. Wow! I couldn’t believe how much information was all in this package. It’s a great tool for teaching younger ones the tools of the trade. I definately recommend this.
