Beasts of the Southern Wild continues to prove itself to be an independent film success story this summer, and as Beasts continues to expand (it's currently in just under 300 theaters with over $7 million in the box-office till), more audiences are wondering how exactly a film this ambitious was pulled off by a group of first-timers both in front of and behind the camera. In this exclusive, ten-minute featurette, you'll get a better idea of just how that worked, as the Creators Project sent director Benh Zeitlin back down to Montegut, Louisiana (where the production was set) to explain some of the secrets of the film, the way he shot those beastly Aurochs, and the unique filmmaking philosophy of his creative team, Court 13. Also, there's some behind-the-scenes footage of Beasts star Quevenzhane Wallis dancing, because you need something adorable in your life today. »
