What do we do? Why do we do it?
We produce short films written by children ages 6-11. We invite the writers and their families to be involved in production from beginning design to finishing the last edits. They come onto the set to meet the actors, learn about film technology, give us artistic notes and ideas, and have fun. We keep the writers and their families informed of all progress at every stage of production, sending early versions of the films before final editing is complete.
Lastly, the writers walk down the red carpet at their MoonHouse premier party. Their friends and family eat, drink, play games, win prizes, and watch the film!
MoonHouse believes kids’ voices deserve to be held up and celebrated as much as any grown-up’s voice. Their creativity, culture, and sense of self are inherent in their art. We are honored to uplift and celebrate them.
But the arts aren’t just good for kids; kids are good for the arts. We are constantly surprised by their wisdom and honesty. Their art changes what art can be.
