Cool Horror Videos: (Extended) Staircases to Nowhere: Making Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining

Last Updated on July 23, 2021

If you found Rodney Ascher's THE SHINING documentary ROOM 237 to be a bit far-fetched but are still intrigued by the story behind the making of that classic film, then do we have a treat for you!

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. 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 1st AD Brian Cook, Camera Tech Mick Mason, Post-Production Sound man Ray Merrin, 1st AC and Second Unit Camera operator Doug Milsome, camera operator Kelvin Pike, scenic artist Ron Punter, Warner Publicity's Julian Senior and more.
