Is Jimmy DiResta’s Wacky Netflix Show, Making Fun, Unscripted?

Did you ever want to build something fun, quirky, and pointless when you were a kid but didn’t know how? Netflix, with the help of designer and video producer Jimmy DiResta, has created a new show called Making Fun. With this entertaining show, some of our silly imaginations are finally coming true. Making Fun, which just landed on Netflix on 4th March, follows expert artists and creatives as they turn children’s strangest and wildest ideas into reality.

Netflix decided to harness children’s raw, creative, and wild energy into a new reality TV show to see what adults can come up with from their fanciful imaginations. It’s an entertaining series that combines design, architecture, engineering, and woodworking elements. There are six episodes totaling just under 40 minutes, and each one has something unique and amazing to offer. Watch the trailer here.

Is Making Fun scripted

The distinguishing feature of Making Fun is that various kids pitch their ideas to the experienced makers, who then decide whether or not to make what the kids have requested. Although the series does not intend to be scripted, a high-performing show must have some stability. That doesn’t mean the show loses its authenticity. For example, they may shoot a few sequences multiple times to ensure that they completed correctly all technical aspects of filming.

Aside from the creativity, the witty banter between Jimmy and his friends is another aspect that contributes to the show’s enjoyment. Their interaction appears to be more natural which comes with familiarity. However, it’s probable that the show’s humor quotient has been significantly boosted in order to keep things interesting. Even though these individuals are experts in their fields, it is possible that they receive help from the production team.

Patrick Laperrière is a woodworker who enjoys making amusing and inspirational movies. Graz Makes doesn’t have a specific product that he creates; he enjoys making anything.

    Love the making process and the banter between the builders. However, the irreverence, I’m sure, that is encouraged by the producers between the children and adults is distasteful (at times seems forced and over the top). There is a lot of valuable making on display, but the amount of waste once the project is completed is shameful.
    Perhaps encouraging more serious suggestions from children that might be used by a school, church, boy/girls club, or recreation department that might actually be used would be a better platform.
    I very much like the show, but the afore mentioned drawbacks take a serious bite out of the show’s integrity.

    My 7yo daughter thinks this show is awesome, and wondered how she could submit an idea if there’s a 2nd season. Can’t find any contact info anywhere online though.

    Ok, my husband and I raised five children, coached children for a dozen or more years, and volunteered at schools for over 25,000 hours. Being very familiar with the beautiful imagination of children, we loved this, and laughed our way through multiple episodes. Love your skills too!!
