Based in Kinsale, Co. Cork, MovieKidz is the brain child of local Cork actor and film maker, Sebastian Thommen. Sebastian has gained experience studying under renowned acting coaches as close as Cork and as far as L.A., and over the past few years has gained valuable experience working on award winning short films and extensive commercial work. Combining his passions for performance and film with his love of teaching children the creative arts, Movie Kidz has been developed as a valuable and enriching extra curricular activity.
Through an interactive and hands on approach, kids are taught all the fundamentals of basic film production. Once the stories are locked in, and the pre-production is complete, the film shoot begins. Each child takes a turn being the director, assisting with the camera operation, scouting locations, acting out the scenes, etc
Emphasizing on fun, creativity and team work, Movie Kidz offers 5 day workshops in the school Holidays where kids get the opportunity to first make a music video and then make a short film.
At the end of each workshop, every child receives a professionally finished DVD copy of their film, as well as a certificate of attendance.
Movie Kidz also offers unique and fun Movie Parties where kids get to make a movie with their friends; costume dressing, face painting and movie making galore!
Enter the world of Film and discover the magic of Movie Making!
