The interactive film studio FILM-X offers children and young people the chance to experience how a film is made, and discover their potential as a director, actor or editor, while creatively collaborating in a group.
Located at the Cinematheque in Copenhagen, FILM-X features three studios where children can shoot and star in their own short films, using virtual sets, green screens and rear projection.
A fourth studio is set aside for making flipbooks and trick films. Moreover, in the Animation studio, the children can experiment with stop-motion animation and claymation. Finally, there are studios for sound recording and editing.
FILM-X offers sessions for schools and kindergartens. Private individuals can book events for children and teens, and companies can book teambuilding events.
FILM-X Animation is a free online animation tool developed especially for children, enabling them to produce their own stop-motion films at home, including editing and sound recording. All you need is a webcam and the materials you want to bring to life with animation – and, of course, a good story. The software includes a large sound and music library, but you can also record and upload your own sounds.
FILM-X Animation is available in an English version and can be accessed from IP addresses outside Denmark. Access the animation tool here.
