  7. Staircases to Nowhere: Making Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’ from Howard Berry on Vimeo.

    Endorsed by The Kubrick Estate and Warner Brothers - the only modern documentary about The Shining to have this honour! Tweeted about by the British Film Institute and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences! This is the oral history story of the making of Stanley Kubrick’s horror masterpiece ‘The Shining’.

    In October 2012 we made a 17-minute oral history using five interviews from The Elstree Project, an oral history project designed to record, preserve and share the memories of people who have worked at the studios of Elstree and Borehamwood. In under six months it received over 100,000 hits and was shared on numerous blogs and websites. We weren’t expecting such a response, so when we realised how popular the short was, we looked to see what other content we had in our archive and who else we could ask to interview.

    Now we present the full story, at 55-minutes in length, and with contributions from nine crew members who worked on the film and Stanley Kubrick’s widow, Christiane. We believe this is the most in-depth exploration into the making of “The Shining” on film, from the perspective of those who actually worked on the production.

    Interviewees are:
    Brian Cook - 1st AD
    Jan Harlan - Producer
    Christiane Kubrick - Wife of Stanley Kubrick
    Mick Mason - Camera Technician
    Ray Merrin - Post-Production Sound
    Doug Milsome - 1st AC and Second Unit Camera
    Kelvin Pike - Camera Operator
    Ron Punter - Scenic Artist
    June Randall - Continuity
    Julian Senior - Warner Bros. Publicity

    The interviews in this film were recorded over a period of three years, as part of The Elstree Project, and with eight students getting the chance to gain live work experience as part of their undergraduate degree course in Film and Television in the School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire.

    The Elstree Project is a partnership between Howard Berry of the University and Bob Redman and Paul Welsh MBE who run the volunteer group Elstree Screen Heritage. Please consider contributing to the project, by using the “tip jar” feature on this video, and help us make more videos like this.

    We would like to thank all of our interviewees, and an extra thanks to Jan Harlan for his help and assistance, as well as Lee Unkrich for his encouragement and assistance with research. We would also like to thank Steven Adams, Associate Dean (Research) and Judy Glasman, Dean, in the School of Creative Arts.

    Please share and comment! We would love to hear your thoughts.

  10. The Spielberg Oner - One Scene, One Shot from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.

    One overlooked aspect of Spielberg is that he’s actually a stealth master of the long take. From Duel to Tintin, for forty years, he has sneakily filmed many scenes in a single continuous shot.

    As always, this video is for educational purposes only.

    If you’d like to see the original footage from the films, here they are:
