Kubrick painstakingly re-created!

This is hands down the best ad I have seen in a loooooong time. Channel 4 re-created the sets from The Shining in an effort to promote a season of 10 Kubrick films to be broadcast on More 4 starting July 15. But they didn’t just re-create the sets, they found lookalikes of the cast and the crew, shot it with a 25mm Cooke lens (one of Kubrick’s favourite lenses), and most of the equipment you see was actually used in the original production!

One-shots are a dime a dozen these days but I like that it makes sense since it’s from Kubrick’s point of view as he walks to his director’s chair. BRILLIANT. I remember Kid Koala sampled this same music for one of his sets (I believe his Breezeblock mix).

  • wow that was incredible

    So amazing, my bowels dropped. Kubrick would be proud.

  • yea the amount of work and attention to detail to promote something somewhat small (as compared to a feature film or something) is really amazing

  • Mudasser

    when i was a kid, channels like MORE did not exist. what a shame.

  • JJA

    I believe the music is Amon Tobin. Fantastic ad.
