Create an Exhibit about the Art and Science of Moviemaking

Chick Russell Communications was retained to develop this traveling exhibit. We met with moviemakers and documented the key people and technologies required to make major motion pictures. We then crafted an exhibit that empowered visitors to interact with all the elements needed to make a film. Visitors discovered that if they were interested in a career in moviemaking, there is almost surely a place for them in the cast or crew.

The culmination of this exhibit is a soundstage where visitors could join a cast or crew, shoot their own film on Hollywood sets, see the final film and email it to their friends right from the museum.
