Inside Jaws, A Filmumentary About the Making of JawsJune 26th, 2013
Inside Jaws, A Filmumentary is an unofficial documentary film project by Jamie Benning on the terrific 1975 film, Jaws. The full documentary is available for online viewing or, if you’re a Vimeo member, you can download the film in a variety of formats. In the film, we hear from director Steven Spielberg in 1995 discussing the making of the film. Beginning with the filming of the memorable scene where Chrissie Watkins (Susan Backlinie) is pulled underwater by the shark,the filmumentary follows the entire movie, including deleted scenes, with commentary from the actors and unknown facts about the making of the movie included. It is well worth viewing the entire documentary.
Benning describes it as: “After completing Raiding the Lost Ark in 2012, I immediately embarked on a new project, tentatively called Jaws Bites Back. After 16 months of trawling, reading, spooling, skyping, chatting, interviewing, editing and refining, I am pleased to release Inside Jaws, A Filmumentary (2013). As with my other filmumentaries this is a completely unofficial and non profit making project made with a genuine affection for the film. Enjoy.”
