Another feature documentary on the 2-Disc "Phantom of the Opera" DVD...
13 March 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

THE MAKING OF 'PHANTOM OF THE OPERA' is an interesting behind the scenes look at the preparations made to bring the film version of the stage success to the big screen, as the most expensive independent film ever made. The sumptuous sets and costumes are featured and the film's producer, SIMON LEE, describes how no expense was spared to recreate the bigger than life illusions in the set designs.

The production designer, the cinematographer (John Mathieson), costume designer and choreographer (Peter Darling) all contribute to the wealth of information concerning sets, costumes and overall look of the film which used a lot of matte paintings for backdrops, as well as CGI and a detailed miniature of the opera house.

Unfortunately, at one point on my DVD this segment ends before the 46 minutes are up, but I'm sure there's more of Joel Schumacher and some of the cast members talking about their roles. If the glitch ever clears, I'll be able to give a fuller report.
