Make a Movie

INSPIRATION

Ethan age 11, wanted to make a movie, so we helped him out. He likes the movies on YouTube featuring kids running around with Nerf guns......if you want to know what a Nerf gun is, go to http://www.hasbro.com/nerf/en_GB/

METHOD

We assembled a cast with two phone calls and bypassed the thinking, plotting, scripting stage and went straight for the shoot. We shot a scene, decided what would happen next, then shot that. We worked fast so no-one got bored. An essential plot device was the resurrector which brought people back to life. This meant no-one minded dying, which saved a lot of arguments. We wrapped after an hour.

TECHNOLOGY

We used a Kodak Play Sport camcorder, £80 from Amazon, looks like a mobile phone, dustproof, waterproof, childproof. I edited on a PC using Premiere CS5. I decided it was essentially a silent movie/comic strip, hence my choice of style........it's called INVADER, enjoy

Go on..............get on with it.
