Trapped with a Filmmaker

25 Aug

So while my wife was helping her mom transition out of the hospital to home life, the kids went with her to hang out with their cousins. However, their aunt likes to make films, so it didn’t take long for them to be drawn into one of Aunt Elea’s projects…

The result is Snack Shorts which are three short films. It’s actually the same script done three different ways, but it shows you what you can do with five bored kids, some time, and an empty Goldfish box.

So she’s exploiting my kids and I get an associate producer credit. That’s okay – my kids exploit me all the time. 🙂 Actually, my son really wants to be an actor, and with the COVID taking out all of his acting opportunities, he really appreciated the chance to perform.

In return, I got a very nice video, they get some great memories, and I need to share the love with everyone else. Any good kid exploitation stories to share? Tell me in the comments below!

    Cute. My friend, also a producer has been posting shorts on her Instagram as well. It’s a lot of fun. When I filmed my short last year, my grandson kept wanting to see what we’d filmed and tell me, the director, “No, let’s do it again, I can do better” Kids’, gotta love ’em. That’ looks like fun.
