30+ Photos Showing What Actually Happens on Hollywood Movie Sets

While the green screens and lots of Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) in movies require actors to be pretty imaginative, viewers would love to be able to see how things work behind the scenes. It is a lot of fun to look at the places where the landscapes were actually added in post-production, check out the weird costumes, and find out about the tricks makeup artists use.

We at Bright Side really love to learn about what happens behind the scenes of our favorite films and TV series, so we’ve done some research to see the sets at the times when the cameras weren’t rolling. And at the end of the article, there is a bonus proving that movie magic can happen pretty much anywhere.
