Do you consider yourself a movie buff? Are you keen to explore the exciting world of amateur film-making? If the answer is “yes” then head on over to MOTAT these school holidays for our Backyard Blockbusters holiday experience.

Here the passion for amateur film-making rules as visitors get to investigate production techniques, lighting, prop-making and how to create amazing sound effects.

They will soon discover that almost anyone has the potential to produce a smash hit once they unleash their creativity and learn more about the tools of the trade including pre-production, framing and storyboarding. Youngsters are guaranteed to return home from this interactive experience brimming with inspiration and enthusiasm to start filming their very own backyard blockbuster.

Backyard Blockbusters activities are included in the normal MOTAT admission fees. But for those budding storytellers, filmmakers and YouTube wannabees who want to take their skills to the next level, MOTAT is also presenting a range of one or two-day mobile filmmaking workshops in partnership with Screenies.

Fees for these action-packed hosted workshops range between $90 and $149.
