Video Essays - YouTube/Vimeo/etc. finds
Time

I figured it made sense to make another thread in the same vein as the Making-Of Documentaries - YouTube/Vimeo/etc. finds, but focused on video essays and other fan made videos that doesn’t quite fit into the documentary category.

Just like the other thread it doesn’t really too many specific rules other than that this thread is not meant for obvious opinion pieces or reviews.

Like the other thread, a highlighted title and short description would be appreciated when posting videos. Of course any additional info like IMDB links, article links, and especially a thumbnail photo would be nice too.

If you want to add a 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.

Any info on the origin of that photo? That doesn’t look like Prowse in the suit. In fact, I’m not sure that’s even an ESB production suit at all. Almost looks more like a cos-player. It’s worth noting he’s missing his robe and codpiece in addition to the cape.

I just found it among a bunch of BTS and promo photos so I assumed it was either Prowse a stand-in.

I’m not quite sure what scene this is from. Maybe just the actors talking backstage? It seems like they’re standing directly under stage lights though.

Looks to me like they’re standing in front of the Death Star viewscreen. You can just make out the slanted lower edge of the screen area.

I had to turn up the brightness of my screen, but yes, it does seem like its the viewscreen in the background. So unless I remember those scenes incorrectly, this means that there’s a deleted scene where Tagge was present, presumably either before Leia enters the room during the destruction of Alderaan scene or some extension of the scene where Vader and Tarkin discuss the tracking beacon.

Not sure if this counts but here’s behind the scenes footage of Andrei Tarkovsky’s masterpiece, Stalker. Truly extraordinary!

There’s been a few interviews added to this thread, and this shows the making of a movie, so I’d say it counts. Though I’d appreciate if you could add part 2 & 3 to your post as well (a title would also be nice). Other than that, great find.

Note the two landspeeders on the trucks in the background.

The deleted landspeeder close-shot with the rear-projection turned off.

Pretty cool photo that I’ve never seen before. Seems like its from the scene where Ben and Luke discover the slaughtered Jawas.

This is an interesting photo. I can see Lucas and Kurtz center-right, and someone’s fiddling with a projector in the back, so maybe they’re showing some dailies or a version of the cut or something like that?

One of the few shots were Cushing actually wore his boots.

Shooting the live action plates for the stormtroopers outside the DS hangar bay pehraps?

The most notorious example i can think of is him thinking he yelled Carrie on Star Wars.

Star Wars: A New Hope: The “Carrie!” Blooper
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3NZ2zNLIbA

I guess it could just be a “yay” or something like that, but it really does sound a lot like “Carrie” to me. And as far as slip-ups go it makes a lot of sense.

I’m looking for a better quality copy of great movie stunts. The one on Raiders of the Lost Ark.
All i’ve ever seen is a really dodgy laserdisc transfer that was overly compressed and stuck on a single layer DVD. I used to have it on VHS and that was not all that much better.
The overly compressed version that was on youtube was worse than the fan brew DVD.
Hopefully someday the people who did 4K77 will transfer it off of 16mm.

The 4K77 people did make a HD scan of a 16mm print. They also did The Making of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

I have to say that I find this far less awesome after finding out that the artist actually cuts up comics to make these. Maybe I’m a bit “priggish” (not sure what the correct term is) about these things, but that seems like a really silly way to pay homage to something you like, especially when there’s other ways to accomplish this without having to vandalize actual comics. I’d also imagine it would get pretty costly, even if mostly reprints were used?

Does he not use photocopies of the comics for his art? (and not use the actual comics themselves)

You’d think so, but I found a few YT videos of his and the cutouts had images on the other side suggesting that he cuts actual comics. Plus there’s a photo on his website of him cutting up a fairly old comic as well.
