Making Grimm Movies shows young people how to use resources and locations in their own communities to produce inexpensive films. Examples from the Brothers Grimm folktale films and interviews with key production staff members guide students through the rigors of translating tales into scripts and storyboards, working with teams of actors and crew members, selecting locations, establishing continuity during filming, and editing fragments into a coherent narrative. The series does not simply tell students how to “read” media; it shows them how to “write” it.
