This is the shortest(with a running time of seven minutes) of the four featurettes that have their own pages here on the site that come on the 2-Disc Award Edition DVD of A Beautiful Mind. After a brief introduction by Howard(yet again with poor Grazer just having to sit there), this goes to Cannom who describes how they did the aging(what techniques and the like), and how they worked to ensure that it was gradual. He explains it very well, it's all easy to understand and you're never lost. We are shown some of the prosthetics, and what we are told is also backed up by this showing clips of the film as examples. There is a single brief portion of behind-the-scenes footage. The editing is subtle, and the focus is on the information that is shared. It's cool that this manages to basically entirely avoid giving away any spoilers. This is entirely based on the on aspect of the picture, and it obviously isn't of any interest to those who aren't that compelled by the subject. There is a little disturbing content in this, and otherwise nothing offensive. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more. 6/10
