I love books that talk you through how to do different things in a really engaging way. I was recently sent a copy of a book called How to Make a Movie in 10 Easy Lessons. The book is a lovely spiral bound book which talks the reader through the ten key steps to making a movie.
When my brother and I were younger and struggling to do homework, or feeling overwhelmed by the size of a project, my Dad would tell us to think about it as though we were eating an elephant, ie: you wouldn’t eat an elephant all in one go as it’s too big, so take a chunk at a time.
There’s loads of advice and tips and tricks which make this a really engaging book for children as well as lots of explanations of technical terms. It covers from the beginning of writing a script and planning a storyboard up to filming and showing the finished film.
It’s a great idea and I can’t wait to see the future titles in this series which are due to be published in the autumn.
