Movie making comes to life at Burnaby Village Museum

It's like living the extra features in a DVD.

Visitors to Burnaby Village Museum this summer won't only learn about the history of movie and television production in the city at a special exhibit in the Stride Studio, but they'll also see how movie magic is created with special demonstrations put on by industry professionals like make-up and special effects artists, as well as animal trainers and costumers.

Saturday a team of stunt performers showed off their skills at parkours, simulated fighting and wire work that allows them to go airborne after suffering a particularly dramatic blow.

The movie demonstrations are held every Saturday through the summer season. For more information, including a schedule of the demos, go to www.burnabyvillagemuseum.ca.
