LDS Motion Picture Studios
The institution that is now the LDS Motion Picture Studios began as the BYU Motion Picture Studio in 1953, and led by Wetzel Whitaker. It was originally located in a building called the Green Barn where the Ernest L. Wilkinson Center on Brigham Young University (BYU) Campus is now located.
In 1991 the studios separated from BYU and became a directly operated function of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).
In 2010, a campus in Elberta, Utah was approved by the First Presidency and construction began on a set of biblical Jerusalem. The LDS Church has released several clips of scenes of Jesus Christ's life that were filmed there as part of the New Testament Film Project, which was completed in mid-2013.
