Are your children fascinated by films? Is your phone packed full of videos they shot themselves? Do you want to inspire their interest in story telling? Then our Movie Makers Guide is for you.
Our brand new guide takes creative kids on a movie-making journey around Hertfordshire and shows them how to create their own short films, with tips from the movie makers of the future.
Hertfordshire is England's Hollywood. The region is home to some of the best known movie studios in the UK, and lots of different attractions have been used as locations for some of the big screen's biggest blockbusters.
We've teamed up with VisitHerts and the University of Hertfordshire to create How To Make Your Own Movie, a practical guide for creative kids.
✓ Hands-on tips: Use the QR codes in the guide to link through to short videos from the filmmakers of the future on how to make a better movie on your mobile phone. Each video includes easy-to-follow tips on storytelling, camera work, lighting, sound, editing and promoting your film, helping your young director pick up movie-making basics in less than 15 minutes.
✓ Inspiring locations: Hertfordshire is an open-air film studio, packed with brilliant locations that have featured in blockbusters, from Batman to Harry Potter. Our movie map will show you what was filmed where, inspiring family days out so your budding filmmakers can make the most of these scene-stealing settings.
✓ Great gift: This colourful, eye-catching guide folds down to pocket-size, and opens out to larger than A3 for giant, easy-to-follow fun. It's laminated to protect against wind, rain and sticky fingers, and can be used time and again as your little ones hone their movie-making skills.
✓ Outstanding value: priced at only £4.99, including delivery, How To Make Your Own Movie is the launchpad for hours and hours of fun as it inspires family days out, teaches your kids a fun new skill, and introduces them to England's fascinating movie heritage.
