The second Locarno Kids HomeMade Movies event will be a journey of discovery into the superpowers hidden within each one of us. We will be able to see them come to life, little by little, through the images of a film.

The new edition of Locarno Kids HomeMade Movies, the Locarno Film Festival's educational journey that will introduce you to the secrets of cinema by making you into a superhero, is about to start.
Locarno Film Festival artistic director Giona A. Nazzaro, a big fan of comic books and superhero stories, meets Gabriele Mainetti, the director who brought superpowers to Italian cinema with Lo chiamavano Jeeg Robot and Freaks Out.
Director Samuele Rossi talks us through his offbeat superhero movie Glassboy: it features a masked hero, just not the kind we might expect…

Samuele Rossi tells us how he created and wrote his superheroes. To start with, what makes one? What are the qualities that make superheroes special – so special they can change the world?

Sofia, with the help of model Giorgia, shows us a real-life transformation. Be inspired – let your imagination run free to create your own superhero or superheroine mask and costume.
In this episode Luca Botturi will give us a few tips on how to start shooting our film. What equipment do we need? What must we make sure we get right? How can we make our images “speak” to viewers?
Luca shows us how to achieve some special effects using simple tricks of editing. But what is editing? And how can you use this technique to show off your superpowers on film?
How do they do those incredible special effects in movies? Luca tells us how some amazing illusions can be created using nothing more than a big green cloth or drape as a “green screen”.
We’ve been on a long journey together – we’ve been transformed into superheroes and superheroines, we’ve given free rein to our imagination in creating our costumes, and we’ve learnt some of the basic tricks of movie-making.
All that’s left for you to do now is to send the short film you’ve made to the Locarno Film Festival – there are plenty of surprises in store for you!
