Uncle Goose Lights, Camera, Action! Blocks


Films make us feel. We may love one film, yet hate another. We may be terrified, thrilled, or amused. We may even feel indifferent or bored by some.

But what drives all these different emotions? Why does going to the movies make us feel the way we do? 

As you play with this block set, you can increase your film literacy. Discover the multiple genres and subgenres of your favorite films. See if you can guess a film’s genre from its description. 

Will you stack the blocks by historical order? Or use the blocks to discuss film conventions like character archetypes and iconography?

Go behind the scenes. Find out more about film genres and subgenres. Explore film history, font styles, archetypes, and iconography.

Sort, stack, and organize. Display and discuss. Enjoy the rich, emotional, full-bodied experience of film!
