OK, I just saw this cool idea for a fun summer project for kids. Our local county library is sponsoring a video contest called Art@yourSt.LouisCountyLibrary.
What a great creative challenge for kids with some time on their hands. This is wonderful opportunity to tell a story–in a different format. Young script writers need to develop interesting characters, dialog, and plot–just as in a written story. But they also have the challenge of making it work on a visual level.
Are you up to the challenge? I hope so.
Even if you don’t enter this contest, challenge yourself to create an entertaining short video. Write an engaging script. Round-up some of your friends and family for cast. Find just the right props and settings. Then video tape it.
Finally, share your screen art with all the cast and crew–and be sure to pay them back with some popcorn and snacks at the premier showing.
Happy 4th of July, Everyone!!!
