August 23, 2011: "Superman Returns" Crew Shots in Exhibition

Behind the Scenes "Superman Returns" is amongst a list of films featured in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' new exhibition, "Crew Call 2011: Celebrating the Crafts". The exhibition features more than 115 images shot on the set of these films.

Opening Friday, September 9, in the Academy's Grand Lobby Gallery, the exhibition, which is open to the public, will run through Sunday, December 18. Admission is free.

    Shot by 25 members of the Society of Motion Picture Still Photographers, "Crew Call 2011" 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.

The Academy's Grand Lobby Gallery, located at 8949 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, is open Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and weekends, noon to 6 p.m. The gallery will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend (November 24 through 27).
