OK, so Elise's (7 y/o) Easter homework was to make a leaflet, poster or other presentation about one of the topics they covered last term. And she enjoyed and remembered a lot about The Great Fire of London, but she'd already made a leaflet about that during term time ... so guess what Daddy suggests?
To be fair her homework was tor write the script (and write it out neatly) rather than produce a film. With the exception of one or two gentle pointers all the words and the majority of the ideas are her own. Halfway through her scriptwriting, I realised we were just making Horrible Histories, but so what?
Production values are pretty dire - the keying of the green screen and the micing in particular.(I had access to no lights and rather limited space. A 3mx2m conservatory with the screen against the back wall, the talent in the doorway and me & camera outside. But that's not the point and it's just excuses for laziness.) I had fun doing the backgrounds.
