Still photography has been around for well over 100 years now, and it’s been used in advertising for nearly that long. With the abundance of screens bombarding our everyday lives, video is beginning to complement, and at times take the place of, still photography — especially when that video is shot with something like the RED EPIC which can give you still photography and video at the same time. Greg Williams, who is no stranger to RED, has been shooting MOTOs (or motion and still photography) for a while now, and his first happened to be for Daniel Craig’s second Bond film Quantum of Solace — and now he’s returned to shoot some MOTOs for Skyfall.

Skyfall has been given a fair amount of attention here on NoFilmSchool recently, as there truly seems to be a great amount of interesting material regarding the making of the film passing through the internet, and also because some things are just plain old too cool not to share. You may also be well acquainted with something else we can’t get enough of — the videos from Michael Coleman‘s consistently excellent SoundWorks Collection series. If you’re not yet acquainted, SoundWorks provides rare insight into, you guessed it, the creation of films’ soundtracks — a facet of the craft we don’t get to examine nearly as often as the visual side of things. Now, thanks to another well-produced offering from the SWC, we get to merge the two aforementioned subjects together, and round out the making-of coverage we’ve had so far on the latest 007 film. Read on to watch SoundWorks Collection’s The Sound of Skyfall. More »

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. More »

Have you you ever wondered what a twenty minute montage of making a James Bond film (and the first digital one at that) would look like? Fortunately, the web provides. I’m usually rather apathetic towards Bond movies before the fact — but this raw, unnarrated behind-the-scenes footage has got me pretty intrigued about the upcoming Skyfall. For one thing, there is some really exciting stunt-work going on in these clips, even with all the wires and safety cushions still un-rotoscoped away. And for another thing — actually, on second thought, we’ll get to that later — these videos have been going on and off-line, and being so clearly unstable, there’s really no time to waste.
