Does anyone have suggestions for a show or movie that explain special effects of movies to children?
My son has just finished watching the first “Harry Potter” movie (now that he’s old enough, its PG rating is OK for him). He’s fascinated with the special effects and keeps asking excitedly “How did they do that? That’s awesome!” I keep answering “with a computer, they draw the image with a program and then impose it on the film…” but that is obviously not detailed enough and I’m not explaining it correctly.
I think he needs to see some shows about behind the scenes work, and how CG graphics are done… green screens, as well as props and puppets. I’ve seen some “how it’s made” shows with behind the scenes footage, but they were for R-rated or violent movies, which I cannot show him.
Anyone have suggestions?
