Andrew Garfield shot childhood movies

British actor Andrew Garfield has been making movies since he was a child as he used to shoot amateur films at the family home with his father as director.

The Spider-Man star has revealed his love of acting dates back to his school days, when his dad would use a bulky video camera to make films featuring Garfield and his elder brother.

He tells The Observer Magazine, "My dad had this awesome old VHS on-the-shoulder camera that he was very proud of. We made a boxing movie once, which was really good fun. Dad was a good director, actually, very nurturing and good to his actors. The films usually ended up with me crying, though, because my brother accidentally on purpose hit me too hard."
