About Walden Media, LLC


The Inspiration
A Walden Media project begins with compelling source material, like a book that kids, their parents, teachers and community leaders already love and admire. Many recent and current productions are based on classic books like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe or recent award-winning novels such as Holes and Because of Winn-Dixie. Other productions are inspired by « real-life » stories like deep-sea exploration or the incredible career of Jim Thorpe.

The Talent
Our production department then selects the right creative team to bring the story to life. The directors, cast and crew who work on Walden Media films, television and theater are among the most respected in their field, including both Academy Award(R)-winning veterans and notable newcomers. Many have personal connections with stories they are telling–the movie may be based on a favorite book from childhood or a story that their own kids have enjoyed reading.

The Foundation
As production gets underway, our in-house education specialists assess how this particular movie or show might spark excitement in the classroom. We partner with teachers, museums and national organizations to develop a comprehensive educational program that delves into a wide range of topics and appeals to different learning styles.

We offer in-class teaching tools like activity guides, discussion topics and enhanced DVDs. We sponsor special field trips and events–for example, a robot-building competition or writing workshop simultaneously broadcast to movie theaters around the country. Directors, writers and stars of our productions participate in these events. We also provide seminars and forums for teachers to discuss their craft and to trade ideas on using media in the classroom.

Like all educators, our goal is to instill lifelong enthusiasm for learning.
