Moviemaking is more accessible to young people than ever before, as smartphones and tablets become ever more powerful. The Movie Making Book teaches you all the skills you need to get started in movies, each with enjoyable games and mini-projects. There are also ten more advanced projects to put all of your skills to the test, and advice on sharing your movies.
Dan Farrell and Donna Bamford are the co-directors of Sparks, a film school for young people based in East London. Since 2010 Sparks has worked with over 3000 young filmmakers, through weekend workshops, holiday clubs, school projects and 'Make a Movie' birthday parties. Sparks aims to deliver experiences where members not only have huge amounts of fun, but where they also have a say. Every child leaves with new skills and confidence, feeling inspired to try their very best.
