The Circa shoot
The National Museum of Australia's Circa theatre provides a dramatic introduction to the Museum's themes, exhibitions and collections. The show takes visitors from deep time to contemporary Australia, introducing objects from the Museum's National Historical Collection together with images and sounds of Australian places and people.

To produce the Circa program the Museum worked with Bearcage Productions to film some 300 items from its collection and travelled across Australia recording significant places and landscapes. Each object had to be assembled and prepared by the Museum's Curatorial, Registration and Conservation staff and then filmed in multiple angles on a green screen.

These photographs show the crew creating images of the Museum's collection and on location across Australia.
