Looking for a project to fill your final days of summer?  Look no further than How to Make a Movie in 10 Easy Lessons by Robert Blofield.  Learn how to write, direct, and edit your own film without a Hollywood budget.  As the title promises, the book focuses on ten skills you'll need to develop:

  1. Find Inspiration
  2. Turn Your Idea into a Script
  3. Visualize Every Shot
  4. Plan, Plan, Plan!
  5. Camera Work
  6. Lighting and Sound
  7. Be a Confident Director
  8. Editing Your Film
  9. Show Off Your Film
  10. Keep on Filming!

Each skill is broken down into smaller lessons that include tons of helpful hints, handy tips, and "WOW" factors for storyboards, shooting scripts, camera rigs, cutaways, and more!  And the book's spiral binding makes it easy to keep it open to the most helpful page.  Highly recommended for movie maker enthusiasts!

Make sure you turn in your reading logs by 9 p.m. on Tuesday, July 28, 2015.   When the vault door closes, it won't re-open until next summer.  We will draw names for the bike and the four teen grand prizes first thing Wednesday morning.
