The mission of this website is to introduce young people to the portable cameras that shaped the history of cinema and our vision of the world. Through a selection of film clips, informative fact sheets, podcasts and a virtual filmmaking activity, they will learn about six cameras in the virtual collection. They will have an opportunity to manipulate these cameras by filming a clip in the Shoot your own Scene section, and will gain insight into the influence these devices have had on the relationships between camera operators’ bodies, cameras themselves and the subjects being filmed.
