'Think you know teenagers? Think again! Teenagers take over museums to shoot and star in their own film. Three groups of young people – from Watts Gallery – Artists' Village, The Lightbox and the River and Rowing Museum – 'swapped' museums to investigate what the museums had to offer for teens. They made story boards before getting started on shooting the film on location. The final step was editing the film and putting their sequences together to make the film cut.'
