Here's a really cool look behind the scenes at the development of MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition
PLANNING OF THE EXHIBITION
How do you make a museum exhibit out of a TV show -- and not just any TV show, but MythBusters? Geoffrey Curly takes you through the very first steps of making MythBusters: Explosive Exhibition.
At M5, project manager Christopher Wilson reviews possible props for the exhibit, getting the story behind each one courtesy of John Hunt and Jamie Lipsky of the MythBusters production team.
DESIGN AND GRAPHICS
Accustomed to working with theater sets, Todd Rosenthal, John Dalton and Kevin Depinet describe the particular challenges -- and advantages -- of designing MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition.
PROTOTYPING AND FABRICATION
Project manager Eric Cup walks us through the physical building of MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition -- including the Running in the Rain test -- for a museum environment.
FUN ON THE SET
What was it like to work directly with the MythBusters to shoot exclusive footage for the exhibit (including some "crazy Kari things")? Media producer/editors Dave Monk and Kathy Monk weigh in.
As Adam says, it wasn't clear how the MythBusters experience -- an experimentation vs. a demonstration show -- would translate into a museum exhibit. Well, step inside and see how it all turned out.
