We’ve all heard plenty of behind the scenes stories about Raiders of the Lost Ark, but you don’t hear many stories about Temple of Doom. I’m not sure why that is, but it’s true. They just never seem to talk about it. Anyway, here is one from Academy Originals. It’s a web series from the organization behind the Oscars that “examines everything from the creative process, to the moments that changed the course of filmmaking, to the artists who are charting its future.” I love that they tell the story using animation.
Special Effects Supervisor George Gibbs tells a story about the bridge sequence in the film. Indiana Jones fans will be interested in this one. But aren’t we all Indy fans?
