Wherever Your Imagination Takes You

Our final Summer Film Challenge asks you to draw inspiration from previous challenges. We can’t wait to see where your imagination takes you! 

What You’ll Need
1.     iPhone, iPad, or any camera of your choice. iMovie editing app (free to download) or editing software of your choice.  

2.     An idea! 

Challenge Rules In this challenge, you’ll create a short film that is under 4 minutes long. Your film, at some point, must contain at least one element from our previous Film Challenges – stop motion, a tribute to another movie, time lapse, documentary element, or a special effect. Use your imagination! You can create a music video, an animation, or ask your family to be actors in a story you create. Have fun, this is your film! Check out the links under Inspiration to view our Film Challenge winners, and a few more fun films starring kids.
