I’m one of those people who always gets so caught up a movie’s story that I forget it isn’t real. I suppose that’s why when I see behind the scenes photos, it’s always fascinating because I never think about the fact that the people in a movie are acting. When you see the pictures taken while the characters aren’t acting, it all becomes clear, in an even more confusing way, if that makes sense.
In the first behind the scenes picture below you see a half-dressed Chewbacca wearing sunglasses and smoking. In the 11th picture, you see the set of Inception, which doesn’t help me understand that movie any more. The picture of the people in the water on the set of Titanic remind me of how well the acting is in that movie.
All of this makes me wonder where exactly the concept of creating a movie originated from in the first place. There must have been someone who originally had the idea to create a movie (which probably wasn’t called a movie back then) in the very beginning. I will put that on my list of things to research for a future article here on Bit Rebels. Out of all these behind the scenes photographs, the one with Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street is definitely my favorite. I am so fascinated by that one, and I can’t stop looking at it.
There are definitely two worlds that coincide with every movie. There is the fantasy world of the movie itself and the story it tells, and there is the real life story of what happens behind the scenes when the actors, directors and the entire crew are enjoying their own lives where they are real people, and not the characters we know them as. I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I did. You can view this entire collection on 2photo.
