BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER - Fun Behind the Scenes Video!
These days we see a lot of behind the scenes videos and featurettes for movies. It has become part of the marketing campaign from the studios. They didn't really do this kind of thing back in the day, but we've got something for all of you die-hard Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans! This incredibly fun 30-minute behind the scenes video is sure to make fans of the series giddy. I had a great time watching this!
The video was uploaded by stunt coordinator Jeff Pruitt, and it's from the second season. It features several members of the cast and crew, and includes footage of stunts, fighting, shooting scenes, costumes, and lots of fun goofiness.
Here's a explanation of the video:
During season 2 we were trying to promote the show so I had various crew and cast members talk to the camera directly to the fans. This was a time before anyone was a star and nobody was the god of his own universe yet. There was no infighting or jealousy among crew members. Everybody supported each other's work. The thing that strikes me most looking back at this (aside from how young we all are) is how innocent it was then; a much different atmosphere than in later high pressure years of the show.
ON THIS TAPE: Sophia Crawford and I participate in some PR. Sarah tries to teach me how to do the funky chicken on ice and producer David Solomon nearly wipes out. James gets a haircut. Various crew members show what they do and Seth Green attempts to open a hair salon. David jams his thumb running into me. Aly is fascinated by a werewolf suit. Nick and Charisma do a scene and Juliet Landau gets to fling Angel into a tree. And we see Joss happily directing David in the sword fight. Plus, a few stunts here and there.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
