Movie making! - Day 1

The agenda for today in our first movie making class was doing what all the great directors and writers do: Script things out! We learned the basics of what it takes to create our very own film and got down to some plot scripting. The actors and actresses are going to have to bring their A-game next class!

Today was the first day of soldering.  The kids got hit with a big dose of soldering safety, does and don'ts.

When they were ready to get started we busted out the hot soldering irons for some practice and got ready to take on the main project of making our own voice changers!
