"Wouldn't it have been great," says Greg Kindseth, a professional film editor, "if they had a film school for kids when we were younger?"
That was the proverbial klieg light going off over his head, so he partnered with his brother John, a businessman who quickly saw the potential in this concept.
Movies By Kids is a creative program designed for teaching young students the exciting process of movie-making and animation. This unique “hands on” program offers children the opportunity to conceive, write, produce and direct their own, animated movies, live action shorts, music videos and special effects segments in one of our unique filmmaking programs. Movies By Kids instructors will lead each “production crew” through the movie-making process while allowing young filmmakers to collaborate and share ideas with others.
Founded in 1994, Movies by Kids has offered after-school enrichment and summer camp programs at local schools and community centers and are now proud to be offering our curriculum in over 100 schools in Los Angeles, Orange County, Ventura, Santa Clarita and surrounding areas. Movies by Kids can attribute the success of its programs to our educational and engaging teaching style, as well as ongoing research and development of digital technologies that are constantly changing. We have devised a program that appeals to parents and kids who are fascinated by Hollywood and the movie-making process, just like we are!
The Movies By Kids website (www.moviesbykids.com) is an extensive site that allows everyone access to program information, on-line registration, or simply to view some of our favorite student projects. Our goal is to enable children to “experience their imagination” in a safe, nurturing environment, with an age-appropriate curriculum taught by industry professionals who know what they're doing and love what they do.
Homeschoolers can take advantage of flexible time schedules and include film-making as part of a well-balanced curriculum and even future job training! As readers of The Link know, script-writing is one of the most exciting and unique ways to study creative writing – now turn last year’s script into this year’s real, live film! Or write and film a new script with new co-authors!
