The joy of settling down with the kiddies and a big bag of popcorn to watch a fun family movie is hard to beat. What are your household film-favourites, mama? Do you enjoy journeying together to strange-new-worlds and encountering extraordinary alien creatures? Or do you prefer a good ol’ laugh and comical characters to tickle your family’s fancy?
Your little ones have probably wondered who is behind the scenes working to bring such fantastical experiences to life for them to enjoy. Perhaps you even have a budding Spielberg in the family who’s already busy planning their own future-blockbuster! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if those movie-mad tiny tots had the chance to delve deeper into the magic behind the silver screen? Well now they can with 50% off Junior Snappers’ Fun Filmmaking Workshop!
Passionate filmmakers make up the Junior Snappers team who share their love of filmmaking with children by teaching practical film techniques. Their interactive Fun Filmmaking Workshop is an exciting opportunity for children to explore their own boundless imagination and enjoy the hands-on experience of creating and filming their own short movie. Workshops are suitable for kids aged seven to eleven years old and, when making a booking with your Sassy coupon, you can choose from two time slots on six different dates.
During the three-hour workshop kids will have a unique opportunity to explore a particular film genre. Previous workshop themes include family faves such as ‘Superheroes’ and ‘science-fiction’. They’ll also have the chance to come up with their own characters, develop dialogue and to begin to bring their own story to life via the fun process of designing a storyboard. The team will explain technical aspects of the filmmaking process such as the function of the Director and art department, how to use certain camera angles to create particular effects and how to use Foley-sound (the reproduction of everyday sound effects) to enhance a story. It’s clear from student testimonials on Junior Snappers’ website that kids just love to learn in this creative way and relish the imaginative activities within the workshops.
Movie making is a collaborative process and involves the cooperation of many people in various roles. Junior Snappers’ workshops help children thrive within a collaborative and productive environment by fostering skills such as teamwork, respectfulness, problem-solving and project management. Technical skills and knowledge gained in the workshop should give your child a head start in today’s multi-media orientated society by enabling them to communicate using modern technology. As well as being a great deal of fun, filmmaking workshops provide kids with real transferable skills for use in day-to-day life.
