This Sunday, the public will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes and see how films and TV shows are made at Kaufman Astoria Studios.
Kaufman Astoria Studios, along with the Museum of Moving Image and Theatrical Teamsters Local 817, will be presenting “New York on Location” —which will provide an inside look into the movie-making business.
The event will provide attendees with access to more than 20 working movie trailers and trucks that are being used for productions being shot in New York.
The public will also have the opportunity to speak to movie professionals about what they do—and watch stunt people perform high falls and street fights. There will be access to dressing rooms, props, cameras, wardrobes and more.
Kaufman Astoria Studios is currently home to the production of Orange is the New Black, Sesame Street, Nurse Jackie and more.
The event will start at 11 am and run until 5 pm. The studio hosted New York on Location back in 2007 and this is the first one since.
Meanwhile, the Museum of Moving Image will also be hosting an exhibit called “Behind the Screen,” which provides a window into how films are made, marketed and shown. It will provide attendees with a look at the history of film making. That exhibit, which is currently on show, is ongoing.
