This is one of the two featurettes found on the DVD of The Andromeda Strain, obviously centered on that title. In that it is a "making-of" production, it's got behind the scenes footage, and apart from that, it consists of interviews and clips of the movie. The actors are entirely devoid in this; they're only shown and discussed. Four people are present, however, and they all get to throw in their two cents: Wise, talking science fiction and film-making; Gidding, on script-writing; Crichton, speaking about his experiences with his novel becoming a silver screen presentation; and Trumbull, going over special effects development and photography. It goes into pretty good detail, going over design, techniques, visuals and score. It's reasonably well-paced, running at half an hour. This should not be watched before having seen the feature, as it gives away certain things. There is no offensive material in this, no language, sexuality, drugs or violence. I recommend this to any fan of the people, and/or anyone who wants to know more about how this was made. 7/10
