Guarda il mondo con gli occhi di Stanley Kubrick

Per promuovere la messa in onda dei film di Kubrick sul canale satellitare More4, l'emittente TV inglese Channel4 ha realizzato uno spot in cui una steadicam si muove all'interno del set di Shining, ricreato nei minimi dettagli e popolato di comparse e sosia degli attori del film.
Il video, semplicemente fantastico, è visibile sul sito del Guardian.
Il programma della rassegna è disponibile sul sito di More4.
Un'intervista al regista dello spot svela i retroscena del video.

Ho trovato un comunicato stampa dell'agenzia pubblicitaria che ha realizzato lo spot sul sito UTalk Marketing.

Channel 4 Creative Services have produced this one-take tracking 65" wonder to promote the Stanley Kubrick season on More 4.

From a Casting, Costume and Art Department point of view it was meticulously researched.

“We wanted to remain as faithful as possible to the period in which it was shot and the culture of the British studio in the late 70s,” a spokesperson said.

“We set about casting people who resembled Kubrick's own crew back in the day, casting look-alikes to play the role of his script-lady (June Randall), AD (Brian Cook) and DP (John Alcott), as well as look-alikes to play Shelley Duvall, Danny and the twin girls who appear fleetingly in the trail.”

Most of the film and lighting equipment that appear in the trail were those used in ‘The Shining’.

Many of the ‘props’ that appear in the trail, including the iconic tricycle and Kubrick's script were produced for the purposes of the trail and based on photos or sketches from his archives.

The spot was shot using a 25mm Cooke lens, a favourite lens of Kubrick's. The idea for the trail is executed in a single 65-second tracking shot with a cast of 55 actors. It was shot over two days in June at Bray Studios, London.
