This Visually Compelling ‘Behind The Scenes’ Video Will Make Your Jaw Drop

One of the most innovative films set to release in early 2010 is the World War I epic 1917

Advertised as a ‘one shot’ movie, 1917 is the story of two Brittish privates sent off on a mission to deliver a message with the intention of save hundreds of lives.

The film may not be out yet, but a short Behind the Scenes featurette of how the film was accomplished is available and it is awe inspiring. 

The incredibly impressive visuals are bound to make your jaw drop. It’s amazing just how much energy, effort and skill go into making a masterpiece like this. 

1917’s Director of Photography is Roger Deakins (Bladerunner 2049, Skyfall, Sicario just to name a few) so there’s no doubt it will look amazing.

The featurette goes into a small amount of detail about how the ‘one shot’ story was achieved. Essentially the idea is the whole film appears as though it was filmed in real time, without any cutting from scene to scene.

Take a look at the Behind the Scenes featurette of 1917 and see for yourself why this creative film will certainly be worth watching in the cinema.
