          Greetings fans of The Shining! If you would like to come to our official 35th anniversary cast and crew reunion, sign up here: http://www.facebook.com/events/841138222563430/ Endorsed by The Kubrick Estate and Warner Brothers - the only modern documentary about The Shining to have this honour! Described by the British Film Institute as "like being on set with Stanley Kubrick" and tweeted about by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences! This is the oral history story of the making of Stanley Kubrick's horror masterpiece 'The Shining'. In October 2012, I made a 17-minute oral history using five interviews from The Elstree Project - an oral history archive which records interviews with Elstree film cast and crew members. In under six months it received over 100,000 hits and was shared on numerous blogs and websites. I wasn't expecting such a response, so when I realised how popular the short was, I looked to see what other content we had in our archive and who else I could ask to interview. Now I am proud to present the full story, at 55-minutes in length, and with contributions from nine crew members who worked on the film and Stanley Kubrick's widow, Christiane. I believe this is the most in-depth exploration into the making of "The Shining" on film, from the perspective of those who actually worked on the production. Interviewees are: Brian Cook - 1st AD Jan Harlan - Producer Christiane Kubrick - Wife of Stanley Kubrick Mick Mason - Camera Technician Ray Merrin - Post-Production Sound Doug Milsome - 1st AC and Second Unit Camera Kelvin Pike - Camera Operator Ron Punter - Scenic Artist June Randall - Continuity Julian Senior - Warner Bros. Publicity The interviews in this film were recorded over a period of three years, as part of The Elstree Project, and with eight students getting the chance to gain live work experience as part of their undergraduate degree course in Film and Television in the School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire. The Elstree Project is a partnership between Howard Berry of the University and Bob Redman and Paul Welsh MBE who run the volunteer group Elstree Screen Heritage. Please consider contributing to the project, by using the "tip jar" feature on this video, and help us make more videos like this. We would like to thank all of our interviewees, and an extra thanks to Jan Harlan for his help and assistance, as well as Lee Unkrich for his encouragement and assistance with research. Please share and comment! We would love to hear your thoughts.
