SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Why go to film school when a child can teach you everything you need to know about making movies?

Today’s children are fully exposed to advanced technology, thus, they’re able to easily create movies for the Three-Minute Picture Show, a festival where amateur filmmakers put together a feature that’s only three minutes long, happening August 21 in Portland, Oregon.

This year, spokesperson Camille Verboort says they opened the event to kids ages six to 18 because the work they create is just plain amazing.

She says, “For years I’ve been getting emails from kids that wanted to be part of the festival. They’re so camera savvy and grew up with computers and all this technology. Many are more skilled than the adults.”

Verboort herself even visited one 14-year-old filmmaker’s home recently to learn how to make a stop animation movie, an experience she dubs “very educational.”
