Discover 100 Behind The Scenes Photos From Classic Films Between 1931 and 2012
Behind the scenes and making-ofs are part of the magic of filmmaking. They help us learn and grow as filmmakers/cinematographers/editors/producers and they offer a different perspective on the Seventh Art and what actually happens when the camera is off. While shooting BTS today is a pretty common exercise, classic and older movies couldn’t afford the same treatment. There wasn’t a point shooting BTS either, since, for decades, the audience would only have access to the final product -the film- in cinemas or, later, on TV.
Fortunately still photography was there, and having a glimpse on how things were is a nice way to travel through time and space, to feel nostalgic and dream of more. The album below, put together by joinyouinthesun, covers 100 films starting with Frankenstein in 1938 and ending with The Dark Knight Rises in 2012.
Enjoy this travel through time:
As Brainpicking says so well, donating = loving.
I spend around 30h per week working on mentorless.com to find articles that will interest all of us, write the newsletter and maintain the site (that would need much more of my time to improve, I agree). A lot of us can’t donate, but if you can, and feel this website deserves your help, any amount will make a difference.
