Teen Summer Reading 2013 starts now! Get psyched (and learn more about it) by watching this Teen Summer Reading video created by Michael Hannah, age 16:
Michael is 16 and lives in Denver. He used to go to Denver Christian High School, but is now attending Faith Christian Academy and will be a Junior this fall. He made this film to help out the Library and to gain film experience.
Michael decided he wanted to be a filmmaker after seeing the movie Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe:
"I was extremely interested in how they made the movie. After checking out tons of books on it and watching behind the scenes videos, I told myself that I wanted to make movies. I don't just love the filming, I like acting, script writing, editing, and basically every element of the filmmaking process."
Thanks, Michael! We hope to see more of your amazing work in the future!
