New York on Location, a free, family-friendly event, offers participants an extensive, daylong glimpse into the nuts and bolts of film production in New York City. Presented by the Museum of the Moving Image, Kaufman Astoria Studios (home to such recent TV shows as Orange Is the New Black, Nurse Jackie, and the forthcoming State of Affairs), and Theatrical Teamsters Local 817, the tour features a total of more than 20 movie trailers and trucks, where attendees can speak to and learn from industry professionals about everything from electrical and camera equipment to makeup, hairdressing, and wardrobe. In addition to the Museum and the gated backlot at Kaufman Studios, the event explores various surrounding streets in Astoria, where — among other attractions — a group of stunt professionals presents demonstrations in live street fighting, stunt driving, and more.
