Just how enduring has the legacy of Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" been? More than thirty years after it was made, we're still talking about, and it's not just because of Rodney Ascher's excellent documentary "Room 237." In the past while, we've seen: a prequel start developing at Warner Bros.; another conspiracy theory doc "The Shining Code 2.0" make the rounds; that helicopter shadow get explained and the lost, original ending surfacing. And so, do you want more? Well, here you go.

The Shining

Just how enduring has the legacy of Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" been? More than thirty years after it was made, we're still talking about, and it's not just because of Rodney Ascher's excellent documentary "Room 237." In the past while, we've seen: a prequel start developing at Warner Bros.; another conspiracy theory doc "The Shining Code 2.0" make the rounds; that helicopter shadow get explained and the lost, original ending surfacing. And so, do you want more? Well, here you go.

Put together by eight students in the Film and Television program in the School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire as a project to help them earn live work experience as part of their undergraduate degree, comes a generous 55-minute oral history of "The Shining" entitled "(Extended) Staircases To Nowhere: Making Stanley Kubrick's The Shining." (Um, awesome school assignment). The history of the film is done via interviews and includes participation by producer Jan Harlan and Kubrick's wife, Christiane, and features reminiscences from key crew on the movie including: Brian Cook - 1st AD; Mick Mason - Camera Technician; Ray Merrin - Post-Production Sound; Doug Milsome - 1st AC and Second Unit Camera; Kelvin Pike - Camera Operator; Ron Punter - Scenic Artist; June Randall - Continuity and Julian Senior - Warner Bros. Publicity. A pretty great lineup to tell the tale.

If you want to dig deeper in Kubrick's masterpiece of horror, this is a pretty good way to go. Watch below. [Filmmaker IQ]
