Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
It’s the big Star Wars day and I thought about posting another Star Wars pic today… naw… how about another space epic, one that predates Star Wars by a solid 9 years: 2001: A Space Odyssey. That seems right… and Kubrick wouldn’t stop the theatrical cut from seeing release in HD, dammit!
What strikes me the most about this incredible photo is that the making of 2001 looks damn near like a real life NASA operation. I assume the wheel has something to do with the circular space ship and also notice how Kubrick has his hand on a record player, obviously setting up playback for the classical music that would dictate the tempo of his film.
Hope you guys enjoy this damn awesome shot! Click to embiggen!
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic hates injustice, not the Normans.
