    After completing Raiding the Lost Ark in 2012, I immediately embarked on a new project, tentatively called Jaws Bites Back. After 16 months of trawling, reading, spooling, skyping, chatting, interviewing, editing and refining, I am pleased to release Inside Jaws, A Filmumentary (2013). As with my other filmumentaries this is a completely unofficial and non profit making project made with a genuine affection for the film. Enjoy. Website - Filmumentaries.com.

    • @jamieSWB - Star Wars Begins - The Complete Filmumentary


      from Filmumentaries - Jamie Benning Added 130K 1,061 56

      PRESS RELEASE: Star Wars Begins – 2nd February 2011 Filmmaker Jamie Benning has finally finished his trilogy of documentary-commentaries. This final chapter concentrates on the first Star Wars film. Like his two previous documentaries, Building Empire (2006) and Returning to Jedi (2007), Star Wars Begins is an unofficial look at the creation of the classic movie and features deleted scenes, alternate takes and different angles, bloopers, original on set audio recordings and a huge amount of commentary from cast and crew, culled from every corner of the galaxy. What’s interesting about the format is that Benning’s documentary is feature-length, and follows the flow of the original movie itself with the deleted scenes added where they would have been, with interviews placed over the top of the action they’re describing. The overall effect is much more engrossing than a DVD commentary track and the wealth of material contained makes it well worth sitting through the entire runtime of 2hrs 18mins. If you’ve never seen the deleted scenes of Jabba the Hutt or Biggs Darklighter on Tatooine, or heard David Prowse saying Vader’s dialogue, then you will get a real kick out of this. Many reviews and comments have centered on the fact that it’s like watching your favourite movie but from an entirely different perspective. Benning has obviously invested rather a lot of time and effort into creating this film, and the other two parts of his own trilogy. Lets hope that on the forthcoming Blu-Ray box set LFL will go into as much detail and exude as much love for the subject matter as these films do. All of Jamie Benning’s Star Wars ‘filmumentaries’ are unofficial. They are all completely non-profit making exercises and are made with respect to copyright and with a genuine affection for the films.

          from Aaron Zeghers Added 575 32 10

          Both beauty and destruction. Both homage and critique. Sincere insincerity amidst the concrete jungle. "Nature here is vile and base. ... I see fornication and asphyxiation and choking and fighting for survival and growing and just rotting away ... It's a land that God, if he exists has - has created in anger. It's the only land where - where creation is unfinished yet. Taking a close look at - at what's around us there - there is some sort of a harmony..." Filmed in a single day by Aaron Zeghers and Nigel Webber. --- "Surface level parking lots are both eyesores and public safety hazards." -Sam Katz [winnipeg mayor], during press release announcing tax breaks to surface level parking lot owners. "Since when has the avant-garde begun looking towards postcards for inspiration? ... What's next Benning, twenty-five sunsets or eleven parking lots?" -Clint Enns [multidisciplinary artist / provocateur] "I like postcards." -Jodie Mack [experimental animator] "It's tangible, it's solid, it's beautiful. It's artistic, from my standpoint, and I just love real estate." -Donald Trump --- \\\ screening history /// > 2014 Transient Visions | Johnson City, NY > 2014 DOXA Film Festival | Vancouver, BC > 2014 Visions Experimental Doc Series | Montreal, QC (upcoming] > 2014 Winnipeg Handshake | Curated by Matt Rankin | Concorida University, Montreal, QC > 2014 Tunnelvision at Architecture Fringe Fest | Winnipeg, MB
