Attention Young Filmmakers!

I received an email today from Donna, a children's book author who has a website called Meet Me at the Corner. She asked me to take a look at it and possibly mention it on my blog.

This is an impressive site, geared toward 7-12 year olds, full of virtual trips that have been filmed by children. The most recent episode features author Robert Sabuda who talks about his work and shows how to make a pop-up card. Marina and Sierra were looking at some of the movies and thought they were very good. I watched a movie where one of the young hosts explains how to make a movie to submit to the site. I may have to charge up the camcorder batteries and have Chase give it a try.

Other interesting sections on this site include the Learning Corner, where activities are tied in with the movies, and the Kids' Corner, which lists links to contests that children might be interested in and tips for real life trips to some of the places mentioned.

This is definitely an interesting site that is worth exploring!

Been following Meet Me at the Corner for a while. Very educational and interesting for other kids. Kind of by kids for kids thing.
