Explore the Science of Film at the MOST!

Have you ever wondered how movies are made? Or how our eyes process the images we see in the theater? The MOST can teach you everything you want to know about movies and more during The Science of Moviemaking: Basic for Beginners on Friday, July 31, 2009. Sessions are held at 11:00 a.m. – 12.:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the MOST, 500 South Franklin Street, Syracuse 13202.

The Science of Moviemaking: Basic for Beginners will explore the science of film and educate participants about what the eye actually sees throughout a movie. Afterwards, learn all about how to use moviemaking software by editing pre-shot video clips and other basic video skills. After this session, home movies may never be the same again!
