My Son, the Filmmaker

There may not have been a red carpet, but last night my son premiered his first (for public consumption) animated short.

I am very proud of his work, as he is 10-years old and entirely self-taught. He wrote, directed, animated, shot, acted…set design, you name it… all of it…for this witty and fun stop-motion extravaganza.

The 4th and 5th graders all showed their shorts to an audience packed with parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, and family at the Shakespeare Theatre of our school.

You really haven’t lived until you’ve spent two hours watching the imagination of kids shown on big screens- there were monsters, lots of monsters. Cats with laser eyes. Lego men and women who seemed to lose their heads a lot. Barbies being mean to each other and eventually making nice. And of course, the story of Bill.

Awesome job by all!
