Indie Trailer Sunday: Making Of '2001: A Space Odyssey' Doc
I know that a lot of people, including my roommate, consider Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey to not only be one of the great films of all-time, but one of their personal all-time favorites. It's not often we get to talk about the sci-fi masterpiece, but amazingly there's a new documentary coming out titled Beyond the Infinite: The Making of A Masterpiece made by Douglas Trumbull, the special effects supervisor on 2001. A trailer for the doc recently appeared on io9 (via SlashFilm) which I thought was worth featuring today. Oh and that great photo above comes from Quint's fantastic behind-the-scenes photo series on AICN.
Watch the trailer for Douglas Tumbull's Beyond the Infinite: The Making of A Masterpiece:
A documentary that really tells the story of the making of Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey, not just the technical story but the human story, the personal story, the experiences of people who interacted with Kubrick that is really true to the style and look of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Beyond the Infinite: The Making of A Masterpiece is being directed by Douglas Trumbull, a former special effects supervisor on 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Andromeda Strain, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Star Trek and Blade Runner; and producer of films like Silent Running and Brainstorm. The video actually comes from Trumbull's own official website, where you can find even more info: douglastrumbull.com.
