There is something magical about the process of filmmaking. To actually go from script to production to screen is a realization of the dreams on which Hollywood itself was built. In today’s day and age, the process is filmmaking is used as part of the hype to sell a movie like Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The evidence of this can be seen in the featurettes that hit in the days leading up to the release of the movies. In addition, director Rian Johnson, throughout the process of filmmaking, would capture behind-the-scenes photos and show them off on his Instagram or at conventions. So many were taken that it sounds like Disney and co. have other plans for them down the line, as Johnson revealed to /Film.
“Yeah, I had that camera on my shoulder the whole shoot. I literally took thousands of shots. So we’ve been already working and on Looper, I did the exact same thing, but I just did like a little book for the crew. Because this is what it is, I think we’re gonna put together a really nice book and put it out there maybe try and do like a little exhibit or something. We print them up big or something.”
There’s definitely a cool quality to them, but while the subjects he’s capturing are cool, even Johnson thinks the photos themselves are nothing special.
“It’s not even that they’re like great photos, it’s [unique] and that’s why I started doing it. I’m like the only person on set who’s not gonna get tackled if they take a picture of something sensitive. I can take a picture of anything I want. And I have this unique perspective of being right behind the camera for this whole process. So I don’t know, I think it’s interesting.”
