Movies in Motion: Bringing the magic of children’s movies to the streets of Paris

Movies in Motion is a fun, dynamic, innovative, new guided-tour company designed specially for families visiting Paris. What makes them special is that their carefully crafted educational tours are structured around an interactive game on iPad, which uses clips and characters from popular children’s films set in Paris to lead the family on a fun-filled adventure through the streets of the historic city center.

The game includes riddles, cryptic images, videos and puzzles, which encourage all members of the family to get involved and discover Paris’ hidden secrets by exploring the city around them.

Sounds like it could be a bit of a challenge?  Well fear not; your trusty Movies in Motion guide will be leading the way, providing you with all the fascinating stories and information you need. You’ll be in good hands as all their guides have years of experience working in education and at least a masters level qualification in Art History.

Movies in Motion was founded by Kristen Gordon, a California native with a background in film and art history. While working at the Louvre museum, she dreamed up Movies in Motion as a fun, alternative way to share the history and culture of Paris with families. She then teamed up with her former Louvre colleague Emma Durrant from Ireland to make it a reality.

While working at the Louvre Kristen and Emma noticed that most children are now so accustomed to using technology that they have a tendency to try to experience the world around them through a screen (iPad, iPhone, camera etc…), something which can often distract them from the works of art and objects in front of them. However, after a while, they began to see the huge potential that his same technology has for engagement and education. As a result, they used all their experience and expertise to develop a digital game for their tour. The game engages technology savvy kids while also making them look up from the screen and explore the world around them.

Movies in Motion’s first tour ‘Paris Islands Quest’ takes place in the historic centre of Paris, which happens to be situated on two Islands; the Ile Saint-Louis and Ile-de-la-Cité. The tour helps you discover the islands’ secrets and includes a detailed visit to Notre Dame Cathedral. Along the way you’ll learn about the origins of Paris, its medieval history and get acquainted with kings, Queens, famous chefs, writers and the city’s ordinary people across the centuries. 

Come join Movies in Motion on the adventure……. Lights, camera, action!
