5 Awesome “Behind The Scenes” Pics: Gallery One


Hi gang! Here is Vic’s Movie Den’s first gallery of Awesome “Behind the Scenes” pics. (Not to be confused with my “On The Set” posts) They are scanned pics from various movie books that I own and / or borrow from the library and some that I come across on the internet, to share with you. I hope you enjoy them and I look forward to doing more of these in the near future. Thanks!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures, everyone. There will be another gallery coming shortly. Stay tuned!

    • Oh yeah, that one rules. I l love miniature work, too. Wait until you see the ones I have from Temple of Doom, Empire Strikes Back and Aliens.

      Thanks for checking in, Mike!

    • Yeah, that Jaws pic is hilarious. So unlike the actual scene in the movie. Winston was a genius and I love all of his on the set work especially Jurassic Park. Glad you enjoyed the pics, Paul. Thanks for swinging by 🙂

    • Thanks Ben! Glad you enjoyed it. There are more to come, so stay tuned, man!

      Thanks for checking in. Enjoy your Sunday!

    • Thanks! I have a few Jaws pics I have just scanned that are pretty cool, for the next gallery. Stay tuned!

      Thanks for checking in!

  1. Hey, Vic. It’s easy to forget that things like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man actually needed to exist, back in the day. That filmmakers didn’t always have awesome CGI on which to rely, that they used to need to find more creative and naturalistic ways of fitting in their effects.

    Thanks for the reminder!

    • That is why I appreciate these older style practical FX. They needed to be on the set and actually take up space and the actors had to react to them and unfortunately, with all the CGI, it is becoming a lost art.

      Glad you liked the pics, Josh!
