Five Year Old Makes Iron Man 6 Movie, Premieres at Shadowland Theater

Jonah Althouse is a five year old student at Ellenville Elementary School. When he was four, he woke up one day and said to his mom that he wanted to be a film maker.

"He then dictated a whole script for a short film and recorded it," beams Jonah's mom , Natasha Althouse, owner of Prashanti Massage in Ellenville, New York.  She continues, "He cast his friends from the Ellenville Cooperative Nursery School and a handful of film professionals donated their time and expertise to help Jonah create Iron Man 6."

This original film will be have its premiere screening at the Shadowland Theater in Ellenville, NY on November 21st at 6 pm. All the proceeds will be donated to the nursery school to help them stay open despite financial hardships.

The evening will begin with the showing of a film Hatching House Flies for Profit, an animated short produced, directed and voiced by Joe Bevilacqua, and edited by Lorie Kellogg, part of the Science-O-Rama online series, created for Imagine Science Films and Popular Science Magazine. The film features Willoughby and the Professor, characters created by Bevilacqua when he was 11 years old in 1972.

"I used to think of myself as a bit of a child protegee but nothing compared to five year old Jonah! It is truly astounding to be able to develop a film idea into an exciting and entertaining story as such a young age," admits Bevilacqua who spend many hours creating the sound track to Jonah's film.

In addition to the screening there will be a raffle for an original print from famed marvel illustrator Herb Trimpe. Mr Trimpe is the original illustrator of the Incredible Hulk and Wolverine.
