Making-Of Documentaries - YouTube/Vimeo/etc. finds

 (Edited)

Since people really liked the YouTube/Vimeo/etc. finds for Original Trilogy making-ofs, documentaries, promos, etc., as well as the other similar threads that I and others have made, I figured it made sense to make a similar thread for the Off Topic section as well. I’m sure people here know of plenty of interesting non-SW making-of documentaries, TV programs, etc.

This thread doesn’t really need any “rules” as with the documentary and trailer threads, but a highlighted title and short description would be appreciated. Of course any additional info like IMDB links, article links, and especially a thumbnail photo would be nice too. If you want to simply add the YouTube thumbnail to the post you can do it relatively easy like this.), or just PM me with the video link and I’ll send you the image link.

There is also the Video Essays - YouTube/Vimeo/etc. finds thread for fan made videos that don’t qualify as documentaries.

I’ll start with a simple documentary that covers various special effect techniques used from the early days of cinema up to the mid-80s.

Special Effects - 1984 documentary on SFX
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hp1Y_kVL6a0 - from the Cinema Garmonbozia YouTube channel (53 mins long)

Another nice thread! 😃

Burden of Dreams (1982)
https://vimeo.com/398013301 - from the Juan C. Gargiulo Vimeo channel (95 mins.)

The blurb (from IMDb):
“A documentary on the chaotic production of Werner Herzog’s epic Fitzcarraldo (1982), showing how the film managed to get made despite problems that would have floored a less obsessively driven director. Not only does he have major casting problems, losing both Jason Robards (health) and Mick Jagger (other commitments) halfway through shooting, but the crew gets caught up in a war between Peru and Ecuador, there are problems with the weather and the morale of cast and crew is falling rapidly.”

IMDb link


Honestly, if someone had told me 3 years ago that Werner Herzog would soon appear in something Star Wars related, I wouldn’t have believed them.

Ditto. And seeing Herzog in the Mandalorian was to me, in all seriousness, one of the highlights of the series. He’s been one of my favourite directors for a long time and Burden of Dreams is one of those rare times when the documentary is equally as good as the film it’s about.

Inside The Labyrinth (1986)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LPSOnJyKDA - from the The Fourth Wall YouTube channel (1 hour 56 mins long).

The blurb:
“A behind the scenes look at the 1986 Jim Henson film Labyrinth, featuring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly.”

IMDB link & Back-up YT link

One of my favourite making-ofs as it really goes into a lot of details about the filmmaking process (especially the FX part), and unlike most BTS docs, which are usually not more than half and hour or less, this one makes great use of its nearly two hour runtime. Fun little bonus detail: Gates McFadden, who most will recognize as Dr. Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation appears in this documentary, though here she’s credited and referred to as Cheryl McFadden, which is the name she used when she worked as a choreographer instead of as an actress.

Blade Runner Convention Reel (1982)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZVW8Zn5fSM&list=PLYn2a0e2FVIJ66EP8vMU64l-kIhHU9zg7&index=8&t - from the FUTURENOIR1982 YouTube channel (13 mins long).

The blurb:
“One of the Blade Runner Convention Reels featuring interviews with Ridley Scott, Syd Mead and Douglas Trumbull about making Blade Runner universe. This 16 mm featurette, made by M. K. Productions in 1982, is specifically designed to circulate through the country’s various horror, fantasy and science fiction conventions.”

On the Set of Blade Runner - 1982 Featurette

Giger’s Alien - 1979
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez8J2bXc3UM - from the Jonno 77 YouTube channel (34 mins.)

The blurb:
“While working on the designs, sets and costumes for Alien, H.R. Giger maintained detailed diaries of the process; later these would be published in the form of ‘Giger’s Alien’ (1979) and the comprehensive ‘Alien’ (2013).
At the same time, his girlfriend and assistant Mia Bonzanigo was a frequent visitor on set to photograph and document proceedings. She filmed the planning and making of Giger’s creations on 16mm, and after the main production was complete, Bonzanigo and Giger edited their footage into a personal behind-the-scenes documentary. Though it provides an outstanding insight into Giger’s contribution to the film, the documentary has remained surprisingly obscure. Clips can be seen in the various official making-ofs on Fox’s laserdiscs, DVDs and Blu-rays, but the full documentary has only been properly released on a very limited VHS from Giger’s museum, and a 1987 Japanese laserdisc, which is presented here.”

Unmasking Zorro (2001)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyjHIKf6zEg&list=PLYn2a0e2FVIJ66EP8vMU64l-kIhHU9zg7&index=18&t - from the Yet Another Channel YouTube channel (45 mins long).

The blurb:
“A behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film The Mask of Zorro (1998), including a brief history of the iconic character.”

IMDB link

This has been one of my favourite movies since I was a child, and unfortunately it seems to be mostly forgotten these days. One of the last classic summer action movies made just as the industry started to get obsessed with CG-spectacle.

That Labyrinth doc is great. I went to a screening of the movie on January 8th (Bowie’s birthday) and, though I’ve seen it a hundred or so times, I always find some little detail I never noticed before. This time it was in a shot panning around Sarah’s room, in the foreground is a wooden Labyrinth board game where you had to use knobs on the sides to tilt the board and make the small metal ball-bearing get to the end of the maze without falling in a hole… I used to get those for Christmas fairly consistantly, probably had like 7 or 8 of them at one point, heh. Also, I’d never seen that Krull featurette before! It was a peculiar but welcome choice to use Tom Bosley (the dad from Happy Days, David the Gnome) as the narrator for that.

Yeah, there’s a lot of fun little easter-eggs inside her room, like the Escher picture that foreshadows the climax of the film, dolls that resemble the various creatures she meets in the labyrinth, the music box which plays the same tune as the ball-room scene. There’s even a figure that blatantly resembles Jared that is very prominent in one shot in the last scene. I suppose these are all clues that the whole adventure was a dream, kinda like what Wizard of Oz did as well.

Also, great find on those two Sam Raimi videos, I remember seeing that first doc when I was in high-school and fanatically watching anything 80’s horror I could get my hands on.

The Making of Fire & Ice (1983)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPuTVjpuom8 - from the Returning Shadow YouTube channel (13 mins long).

The blurb:
“Fire and Ice was a 1983 animated film collaboration between Ralph Bakshi and Frank Frazetta. Because it was the most action-oriented story Bakshi had directed up until that point, rotoscoping was used, adding a sense of realism that also helped replicate the look of Frazetta’s artwork. This footage comes directly from director Ralph Bakshi’s old VHS footage.”

This is probably the oldest making-of I’ve ever seen. It’s actually kinda weird to see a making-of that predates the invention of television. I’m assuming this was show before a movie alongside actual cartoons, newsreels, etc.

I honestly can’t remember seeing a lot of documentary series about the making of games, but this series was fantastic and it really gave me a completely new appreciation for what goes into the making of PC games.

Double Fine Adventure!
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIhLvue17Sd7F6pU2ByRRb0igiI-WKk3D - playlist from the official DoubleFineProd YouTube channel (21 videos, 20-30 mins average per episode).

The blurb:
“This landmark documentary series allows everyone to share in the passion, humor, and heartbreak of making “Broken Age”! Featuring twenty episodes plus a host of new special features, the Double Fine Adventure is the most in-depth look at video game development ever produced.”


They also made a similar 3-part making-of for the remastered version of Grim Fandango (one of the most origina PC games ever made IMO), as well as the remastered version of Day of the Tentacle & Full Throttle.

Great finds, Raiders and the Thing are two of my favourite 80’s films (or any decade for that matter). The Raiders featurette was especially interesting. Its always fascinating to see contemporary BTS and interviews from before a film has made its impact and everyone’s trying to sell you on the idea.

Yeah, both Raiders and The Thing are definitely in the top 5 for me as far as being consistently life-long favorites.
