Making Grimm Movies is a sixty-minute video divided into school room convenient 20-minute parts that teach the fundamental principles of creative moviemaking. In accordance with examples from Tom Davenport’s “From the Brothers Grimm” folktale series, “Making Grimm Movies” shows young people how one can use resources and locations in their very own communities to supply affordable videos. Videos about moviemaking have a tendency to be either illustrated guides, like primitive Kodak manuals, or publicity films in regards to the special effects and celebrity personalities of high-budget features. “Making Grimm Movies,” however, speaks to the inventive young filmmaker with a limited budget and unlimited creative energy.
Program one covers script-writing, casting, and makeup. Program two features locations, set design, sound, and the “creation” of locations through juxtaposition of images. Program three includes cinematography, editing, and film acting.
