SPECIAL EFFECTS. The interactive exhibition for movie fans

Youtube Video

Fancy making the impossible possible and visible?! Or creating your own illusions using special effects?
In our interactive film studio you have the opportunity as a group to create a digital trailer using unique tricks implemented directly on the film set. That way you can experiment with, and talk about, the way special effects are perceived in films and the impact they have.

Then why not show off your acting skills in front of the camera or, if you prefer, take charge by stepping behind the camera instead. There are lots of different costumes, props and shooting locations with various effects for you to try out.

Bookable for groups as part of the ‘And … action!’ Workshop, suitable for ages 7 to 12.

    As small as a dwarf? As fast as a superhero? As creepy as a monster? How are movie special effects created? On our tour of the Museum you’ll find out how and when still images first became ‘movies’ and what the first films were about; we’ll also take a peek behind the scenes of a movie production.
