Nowadays, more than ever, people have access to equipment that can help them become movie superstars, all from the comfort of their own homes. We've seen some brilliant YouTubers setting up their own channels and becoming famous (or infamous) all over the internet.

But what if you want to give your movies a bit more zip and pizazz? What if you want to learn more about the movie making process, from start to finish - how ideas are formed, are pitched to studios and then what happens once a movie goes into production?

Robert Blofield's awesome and informative book sets up a structured way of approaching movie making breaking things down into easy to understand terms, but also offering plenty of technical background so that would-be Spielbergs can start from scratch and even get friends and family involved in their productions.

Laid out in our new favourite format for activity books - a covered spiral-bound book that lays flat so you can work directly from the book when making your movies, it's an essential resource perfect for those getting started but with enough new tips and tricks to breathe new life and inspiration into your current productions.

Charlotte's best bit: Setting up storyboards, like producing a running comic strip of your movie's plot. Awesome!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A really fantastic and packed resource for would-be movie makers. ACTION!
