The way each child sees the world is unique and magical. The ideas they formulate have the capacity to surprise, amuse and provoke thought. Their perspective is constantly changing as they learn and develop. Each idea is a delight, but it’s also fleeting. Over the past ten years, we’ve developed our World According to Kids program as a way of capturing these observations. Many families choose to get us to film their kids in order to document each stage of childhood.
However, having a professional film crew is not the only way to do this. If sufficiently motivated and organized, you could do this yourself at home each year.
What do you need?
How to film
Here are some examples of well-framed and well-lit shots.
What to ask
It’s best to prep a list of questions in advance – think about what you would like to remember about them and things you can ask them year after year.
Start with some simple questions
What do you prefer ice cream or mum/sibling? Etc.
Capture their interest
Ask the big questions
Don’t be afraid to get on to the more weighty topics…It’s in these areas that kids often have the most interesting ideas.
Think about questions like:
What makes them laugh?
Don’t go on too long
30 minutes is a good amount of time
Back up your footage
Save your video somewhere where it’ll be easy to find.
Make a note when you might want to film them again
Put a note in your calendar to film again in the future. Every 1-2 years is a good interval.
