MAKING MEDIA

WHETHER YOU’RE A FILM FANATIC OR SMALL-SCREEN BUFF, YOU’LL DIG THIS GIG


In movies, there’s art (think Fantasia animation) and there’s plot (remember The Godfather). But both rely on science to come to life. Film how-to is the subject of Behind the Screen: Making Motion Pictures and Television at San Francisco’s Exploratorium, on view February 10 through May 13. Early technology, contemporary camera anatomy, sound editing experiments, and special-effects demonstrations highlight the hands-on show. See www.exploratorium.edu or call (415) 561-7337.
