Based on our reflections on the concept of playful in the previous playshop, this program was made more flexible to allow children to be more self-motivated and creative. More consideration was given to the facilitators' interaction with participants. As participants prepared the set, they became increasingly fascinated with the world of movies and this enthusiasm led to works of high quality.

Future Issues

The new attempt to create a movie was more successful than it had been expected. It revealed new possibilities for creating audio-visual programs with children. Three groups made their movies in one room and it was not possible to eliminate extraneous noise. Future issues will be finding appropriate sites for making movies and sound effects. It may also be possible to create ongoing works in the course of daily play.
