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).

    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

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

    I believe the music is Amon Tobin. Fantastic ad.
