Trailer for 'Making Apes: The Artists Who Changed Film' Documentary
"This has gotta work, or we're all in trouble." Gravitas Ventures has released an official trailer for a movie history documentary called Making Apes: The Artists Who Changed Film, from filmmaker William Conlin. The movie is a fascinating documentary about a group of ambitious makeup artists, telling the story behind the guys who changed everything with Planet of the Apes. 50 years ago, John Chambers and Tom Burman changed the future of cinema with their groundbreaking work on the make-up and costumes for the apes in the seminal sci-fi film. The doc film features appearances by Tom Burman, Guillermo del Toro, John Landis, Rick Baker, Leonard Maltin, and Matt Winston. I really love these docs that go deep into the historic behind-the-scenes moments of Hollywood, specifically the FX industry and how they pulled off major milestones like Apes. Can't wait to watch this. Any and all movie geeks need to watch out for this.
