The crew at the Library as Incubator Project was thrilled when a classmate of ours, Carissa Christner, sent us this kit for a fun filmmaking library activity. Good for older kids and teens, this program teaches about short films and has kids puts what they learn into practice by writing and filming their own short film.
Carissa Christner is a youth services librarian at the Madison Public Library in Madison, Wisconsin. She is currently a student in the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Library and Information Studies working on her master’s degree.
