… and Action! How are Films and Television Made?

An Exhibition for Children aged 4 to 14 Years

29.05.2014 to 26.04.2015

Today, children and adolescents are constantly confronted with motion pictures, whether on the Internet, at the cinema, on television or in computer games.

What are the processes that lead up to a news broadcast and what happens behind the scenes of a casting show? How does a green screen work?
