Whether they're made for movie theatres or television, today's major productions all rely on special effects (FXs) to bring to life ever more astonishing esthetic creations. Nonetheless, we know very little about these "mysterious" effects. As you browse through the exhibit, you will be able to experiment with different processes, all the while learning about the main stages of moviemaking as well as the different trades involved.

Spotlight on a craft that usually prefers to stay away from the red carpets!

How are FXs imagined, worked into the script, and finally brought to life? Which trades and skills are at play here? All questions which Special Effects answers by showcasing every stage of moviemaking, from preproduction to postproduction, through an array of carefully selected movie clips.
