Sam Mendes, Meet James Bond: The Making of 007's New Film 'Skyfall'
You might have already seen the previous behind the scenes that we posted for the Roger Deakins-lensed and Sam Mendes-directed Skyfall, but now we’ve got a more traditional video blog/making of that goes beyond raw on-set footage, and actually gets into the entire process for the production of the film. While the videos are short, they’re a little under 30 minutes in total, so sit back, relax, and catch up on some Bond, James Bond.
Here are the behind the scenes videos:
What’s clear from the above videos, if you’ve ever seen this type of making of series before, is that each position is as specialized as possible on the biggest Hollywood films. This is in stark contrast to low-budget shorts and features where the director may also be the shooter, editor, sound designer, and anything else that might be required but just can’t fit into the budget. This isn’t always the case, of course, but more often than not the less money you have, the more multi-hyphenate you have to be.
If you guys have seen Skyfall, what did you think of how the film looked? Do you wish Bond was still shot on film? How about the production values? Let us know in the comments (without spoiling the film for anyone else!).
