Bill Brown, who plays Pvt. Brick in Starship Troopers 2 was interviewed along with the rest of the cast. He does not appear in the featurette, however, because he gave the interview with a sock puppet, speaking with a high pitched voice the entire time. See more »
"I hope there will be other movies like this, where we get to be very creative & imaginative & rip people's heads off." In depth making-of featurette.
Inside the Federation is a 30 minute fairly in depth look at the production of Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Fedration (2004) & is widely available on the UK & Sateside DVD editions of the film. Everything you would expect from a promotional piece such as this is here, the director Phil Tippett discusses the film, the special effects, the writing, the rushed production schedule & the various other crew-members involved. Writer Ed Neumeier talks about his ideas behind the script while the likes of the production designer, special effects people & the producer all feature. A large number of the cast also share their thoughts & feelings. There are a few interesting moments like the film was shot in 26 days in two studios & filming with high definition video instead of film. Unfortunately, for most of it's duration, this is very much one of those promotional 'wasn't he/she, the script, the special effects etc. brilliant' type affairs as virtually everyone gets a big pat on the back from everyone else. There are numerous behind-the-scenes on set footage, rough uncompleted special effect's scenes to demonstrate the process of how they were achieved & lots of relevant clips from the finished film to illustrate certain points made by the interviewees. Inside the Federation is one of the better featurette's out there (although having said that I usually can't be bothered to watch them) that I have seen but I maybe would have liked everyone to have been a bit more forthright & less concerned with sucking up to everyone else.
