This is the longest of the four short featurettes on the 2-Disc Director's Cut DVD of Beowulf, with a running time of 7 minutes. It consists of interviews, behind the scenes footage, artwork and clips of the film. This goes over the designs of the creatures(yeah… you probably really should not watch this before you've seen the entire movie, as it will give away stuff best seen in the effective reveals in the picture itself), the thoughts and concepts that they went for, the considerations that they went through and we get to see concept drawings in different stages of the overall development. With how brief this is, it doesn't delve deeply into anything, but it doesn't overstay its welcome either, with how concise and tightly done it is. It doesn't feel curt, and if you want information about this particular subject, this won't let you down. The editing and cinematography are well-done. Everyone explains stuff well, and this is interesting enough. There is no offensive material in this. This is pretty solid for anyone who wants to know more about what this goes over. I recommend it to everyone in that group. 7/10
