Children act up with some movie magic
Kalgoorlie-Boulder kids have become their own movie directors, stars and producers with help from the YMCA.
About 70 kids aged five to 12 rocked their favourite action character outfit for the dress-up day, making their own movies on an app. The kids took to movie fame quickly, lapping up the publicity of getting their photo taken.
The school holiday activity marks the second-last session for the centre’s holiday program, with school due to go back next week.
YMCA children services co-ordinator Kate Virgin said the videos included animations and were shown on the TV after creation.
“We created little short stories, making the little effects and everything,” she said.
“The most creative was definitely the kids getting chased by the dinosaur and running away.”
Ms Virgin said the most popular outfit for the day was some form of superhero, with a lot of Spidermen in the building.
Other costumes included princesses, Power Rangers and Batman doubles. She said the day ended with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-inspired pizza.
“They made little pictures on their pizza, but with vegetables so it’s still healthy,” she said.
