URBANA–A group of children in Champaign-Urbana are getting the experience of a lifetime because of a new competition started by the Champaign-Urbana Film Society.
Nine scripts written by students throughout Champaign-Urbana are being turned into short films.
This weekend, one of those films, written by 10 year old Iona Sofia Hopping, began shooting.
Program organizers say they went through about 120 script entries.
They say, this program could encourage children to explore new avenues of creativity.
