Guest lesson Just Like in the Film

Will you join us on a time travel? In this guest lesson, pupils will travel back in time, to the challenges faced in film history. Using films from Eye’s collection and viewing and hands-on assignments set by the museum educator, they will discover some of the clever tricks used by filmmakers of the past.

Soundtrack, green screen and sound

The class works on three challenges: How do you make a soundtrack for a silent film? How do you act without sound? How do you make someone disappear without a green screen? Pupils get to work and find out how film has become the medium we know today.

Eye is celebrating its 75th anniversary and is handing out birthday treats
