Movies have always been a source of fascination for audiences all over the world. The glamour, drama and action that we see on screen are often the products of hours of hard work by hundreds of people behind the scenes. Movie sets are like mini-cities where actors, directors, producers, crew members and various other specialists come together to create the magic we see on our screens.
