How Did They Do That? Burning Questions Answered in New Behind-the-Scenes GRAVITY Featurette

     December 23, 2013

With Gravity, director Alfonso Cuaron brought mystique back to the movies.  The film is almost like a magic trick in that much of what happens onscreen seems physically impossible, and after I saw the film for the first time I remarked that I couldn’t wait to own the Blu-ray so I could pore over hours and hours of behind-the-scenes extras that reveal  how Cuaron pulled this off.  In the spirit of Oscar season, Warner Bros. has now released a new featurette that finally offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the film’s effects were created by Cuaron and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki.  It’s a fascinating if brief look behind-the-scenes, and I hope there’s plenty more where this comes from on the eventual Blu-ray release.

The film is a major Oscar contender in a number of categories, but this featurette focuses mainly on the jaw-dropping visual effects and Lubzeki’s gorgeous cinematography as well as the metaphorical intentions of Cuaron and Jonas Cuaron‘s screenplay.  Hit the jump to watch the featurette.
