How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Steve Smith creator and actor of the Red Green character, has been involved in Canadian television production for decades and—much like Red Green—has learned how to make something out of nothing in the entertainment business. Duct Tape Forever was produced on a scant $3.5 million dollar budget, with Smith contributing a great deal of his own money and pulling his own trailer for sleeping accommodations. As well, many fans of the television show helped by contributing their own duct tape creations for the final scene.

For more information on Smith and his Red Green creation, check this article archive from Canada’s Canoe web publication: www.canoe.ca/TelevisionShowsR/redgreen.html
