Filmmakers Zoe and Bailey started with asking the question, What is a film? What is a documentary? What do you need to get started? An idea and a camera. You can use an I phone? The more you practice the better you become. Do you have a story? Brainstorming. What is brainstorming? Thinking. Think for a minute something you think will be interesting. The story can be sad or action or yellow feather on a journey.
Really important part is the characters. People, animals, and make believe creatures. They showed a movie of a dog as a main character chasing the butterflies. You can use a toy as a favorite character. You can catch yourself in the movie. Then, the next step in the process was script writing. Zoe and Bailey showed a documentary film for each step of the film making process.
Families and children visited the COW Bus and picked up ideas to create literacy materials from things in and around their house.
