Journeying about a single room
8 February 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the longest of the six featurettes on the 2-Disc Director's Cut DVD of Beowulf, with a running time of 24 minutes(extended slightly by the Easter Egg with Malkovich that plays automatically once this has played in its entirety... am I the only one who got a "weird hidden camera and pretty creepy" vibe from it? Anyone?). It consists of behind-the-scenes footage, interviews, clips of the film and pre-visualization. With a sort of feel of a production diary, this is a tad short on amusing anecdotes, but if you're interested in learning more about the technology they used, it's pretty solid. Every actor is running around in spandex with, and surrounded by, bright neon colors, and you get to briefly see how they manage to mo-cap two performances interacting with one another even though they aren't in direct contact on the... "set". It's no wonder they had "existential crises", as is remarked in this. Christ, the very *props* are eye-sores, color-wise. This is well-edited, and the pace is good. Everything is explained fairly well(with that said, if this is the first big FX pic where you get the tools behind it described, you may not understand everything). There is a little moderate language in this. I recommend it to anyone who wants to know how they accomplished making the movie. 7/10
