Backyard Blockbusters Holiday Experience

Open your eyes and ears to the world of amateur film-making this April with MOTAT’s Backyard Blockbusters Holiday Experience. Explore the art of film making as you discover some of the key skills, techniques and theories that go into making a movie. Return home with a “toolbox” of tips and tricks for your next DIY film. Learn more about production techniques, lighting, prop-making and how to create amazing sound effects. Get hands on with the tools of the trade including pre-production, framing and story boarding. Our holiday experience provides all the tools to start filming your very own backyard blockbuster. DIY movie making has never been easier!
