How’d Kubrick do 2001?

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

I remember seeing Stanley Kubrick's 2001 in a theater when it was released.

I don't remember much really, but I do recall being confused.

Maybe because I was 11 HA!

It has always been fascinating of course and when I stumbled into this analysis of some of the technology used to create such a science fiction masterpiece more than 50 years ago, I had to tune in.

I hope it serves you as well.

Part 2

Description of part 1Ever wonder how Kubrick made his sci-fi masterpiece, 2OO1: A Space Odyssey? In Part 1, we take an in-depth look into the production of ‘The Dawn of Man’ sequence. I spent over a month compiling all the available information I could get my hands on to better understand the construction of this masterpiece.
