The Society of Motion Picture Still Photographers returns to the Academy’s Grand Lobby Gallery with a show of more than 115 new images, taken on film sets by 25 of their members. The Society’s previous exhibition, “Take 2,” was on display at the Academy in 2005.
The exhibition will include photographs depicting the work of numerous, and essential, ‘below-the-line’ craftspeople on a movie set, from animal wranglers, puppeteers, makeup artists, seamstresses, stunt performers and prop masters to grips, gaffers and P.A.s. Several images show how production design and visual effects departments work preparing sets and staging action sequences, and provide glimpses of how the magic of the movies is achieved during long days and nights of shooting.
