Lights, iPad, Action! StarTime’s iStar Filmmaking workshop will get kids in film crews to create their own action/comedy and special effects scenes. Inspired by the access to amazing filmmaking apps like iMovie, intromate, action movie FX, Superhero FX and Flipaclip, student’s imagination will be inspired.
