“I love the power of music. I was shy growing up, but music enabled me to gloriously come out of my shell. I want to do the same for future generations which is why I established Make me a Rockstar!”

~ Lauren 

All Make me a Rockstar workshops have been developed and structured incorporating the My Time, Our Place framework as well as the PDHPE and Creative Arts Education based curriculum.

About the workshop

The experience will have everyone dressing up in costumes to perform in front of a camera, at the end seeing the dance they made together with their friends.

They will also get to observe and experience the video editing process involving the green screen, lights and the use of special effects within the editing process.  

It is important that children do not wear green clothing or they may look invisible..and it’s not a cool invisible 😉

* Pricing begins at $650 to cover the videographers time on the day and follow up editing

About the workshop

A full day of Movie Fun!! From drama and improvisation games, to clapperboards, learning about the behind the scenes of movies and how to be a Hollywood star! Even includes coloured hair spray and photos on the red carpet!

Children will act in front of the green screen, turning the footage into a film for them to watch a little bit of the process, and then the end result after the editing.

 Children will be given the opportunity to dance in groups, be one of 3 special hosts, watch the editing process, be part of a special effects video clip and learn how to bring everything together at the end. 

Children will gain confidence and self-esteem as they learn to be ‘larger than life’  in front of the screen.

It is important that children do not wear green as they will look invisible..and not in a good way! 😉
