Format: 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.

My 6 and 9 year old grandsons are both very imaginative and creative. At Christmas, the "Movie Maker" was a real hit with the 9 year old. When he was finished playing with the new toys a few days later, he sat down by himself and read the guide. Before long, he had his younger brother featured in a vampire movie. Grammy (that's me) was the creepy shadow and also provided some scary noises for his movie. He was making a movie on and off for several days when I visited. And I know he has made more than one movie, like one about General MacArthur (since he had done a book report on him. Personally, as a grandparent, I love to give this type of gift.

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!

This was a gift for my nephew for his 6th birthday. He dreams of making movies one day. This by far stole the show. He got so many amazing gifts, but this was his favorite, all he talked about for weeks! It really does have a lot of cute stuff in it!

I bought this for my daughter for Christmas and she absolutely loves it! She and her friends love to make movies and now she wants to go to drama camp. The clapper is a bit cheap but overall good value for the price.
