Filmmaking for Children.
Rynew, Arden
Filmmaking, when used to structure the activities of an art program, can become a tool to enrich the educational environment, to detect and observe all types of physical phenomena, and to extend the limits of observation. Designed to stimulate filmmaking in the elementary school, this handbook documents an approach to adding filmmaking to a present art program. The first part offers a rationale and considers such practical problems as organization, choosing equipment, and approaches to a program in relation to equipment. The second part, on implementing a film program, contains chapters devoted to specific tasks in filmmaking: production schedule, organizing the class, selecting the writers, selecting the director, camera work, sound, lighting, graphics, costumes, scenery, special effects, and selecting the actors. (In this section references are made to a "Motion Picture Production Handbook" which comprises the appendix to this book, but which is also a separate document: EM 009 410.) Additional filmmaking information is provided in the third part, covering editing and splicing, animation, related art projects, and more technical aspects of light and color. (SH)
