Enjoy This Raw Unfiltered Behind the Scenes of ‘A Quiet Place’

The success A Quiet Place is receiving, is every independent filmmakers dream. The John Krasinski horror/thriller has already grossed over $50 million in its U.S domestic opening weekend, this more than covers the making of this $17 million production.

So how did Krasinski create this terrifying box office hit on such a limited budget? Lots and lots of hard work folks. But seriously, watch this video by FilmIsNow Movie Bloopers & Extras, for the best raw behind the scenes I’ve ever seen for a film. Nothing flashy, no playing to the camera, no music, just 15 minutes of pure filmmaking in action.

Get a glimpse of how Krasinski directs his actors and how they filmed the monopoly scene from the trailer. If you’ve ever dreamt creating your own films, this is rife with inspiration; enjoy!
