20+ Behind the Curtains Scenes That Are No Less Interesting Than the Movies Themselves

year ago

When director Terry Gilliam decided to make a screen version of Don Quijote, various issues started to appear in the process. At first, the actor who was playing the main role got hurt, then the shooting had to be stopped due to a hurricane that hit Spain. Eventually, instead of creating a movie about the wandering knight, they created a documentary movie called Lost in La Mancha that revealed the shooting process. It ended up being no less intense and dramatic than the final movie about Don Quijote that they managed to complete in 2018. It proves that there are many things that stay behind the curtains and out of viewers sight.

We at Bright Side decided to go behind the curtains of modern movies and TV series and peek at what the creators do between the phrases “Lights! Camera! Action!” The bonus at the end will show you how superheroes celebrate their birthdays.

“Best part of shooting with Michael Bay? I don’t know. A lot of people would say the action, but for me, it’s the stillness. Those quiet moments that... the feeling when you are lost in the character’s eyes. That’s the moment for me I think.”

those actors, who play as different creatures and animals in those costumes and special gadgets, have it even harder than the real actor. I think we don't praise those guys enough
