It sets forth the advantages and disadvantages of 16mm as opposed to 8mm film making. It gives suggestions for equipment and a supply budget for a beginning workshop for ten youngsters. It gives advice on how a teacher should direct and curb the enthusiasm of beginning students while they are working on their scripts. The difficulties of shooting a picture and of editing it are dealt with. The addition of sound to the film and various sound effects are discussed. Student growth during the making of the film and the responsibility of the teacher to this growth are discussed. Showing the New York-made films via"Moviebus," a Volkswagon outfitted as a projection booth on wheels, is related, and with the feedback-effect of audience reaction on the teen-agers who had made the films.
