CALLING kids who have always wanted to get behind the scenes to direct, produce, edit and even star in their very own Discovery Channel-style documentary. It’s time to get off the couch for Kids Vs Film’s casting sessions.

Following the success of season one of Kids Vs Film – a Discovery Kids’ original production that engages kids with documentary-making techniques and the fun of creating their own documentary from scratch – the channel is on the hunt for 48 kids aged between nine and 13, to participate in its second season.

Casting calls will be held from 9am to noon, and 1pm to 4pm, on Sept 7 (Saturday) at Grand Ballroom, Marriott Hotel, Orchard Road in Singapore, and Sept 15 (Sunday) at Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel, Jalan Sultan Ismail in Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysia will not just be a stop for casting calls, as four out of the eight episodes from the upcoming season will be shot in various locations across the country.

Kids Vs Film is an epic filmmaking adventure that gives kids the rare opportunity to play the part of production crew and documentary hosts, with one goal in mind – to create two-minute mini-documentaries for kids, by kids.

As excitement builds up leading to the casting calls for the second season, young viewers and their families can catch the frustration, fun and mayhem kids face while shooting their mini-documentaries in the encore episodes as it airs every weekend (10am) on Discovery Channel (Astro Ch 551) as part of its Discovery Kids block.
