Secrets of Movie making: Talk

Onsite talk

Go behind the scenes of film production

Through films made by young people, students learn more about filmmaking and take away some know-how to inspire their own productions.

This lesson focuses on:

  • student-made film and animation projects
  • the different creative and technical roles involved in filmmaking
  • the technology, tricks and techniques behind the magic of filmmaking
  • going about getting started on a personal or group film project

This talk takes place onsite at ACMI, and includes a visit to our new exhibition The Story of the Moving Image.
