In the language of cinema, the making of or what fans generally call it as the behind-the-scenes of a movie, that is present on the set, is a documentary movie which features the production of a film or a TV program.
It’s often referred to as the electronic press kit or the EPK video, which is used as a promotional tool, that is either parallel with dramatic release or as the bonus aspect for the movie’s Blu-ray and DVD release.
Feature-length presentation on the making of other movies has become a genre in its own, and the behind the scenes may eventually be more important than the film itself.
Similarly, at times when we finish a movie, we don’t get to see it’s behind the scenes, moments the led to the final product until they are released on DVD. The making of a movie can be really messy, uncertain, and sometimes even unsafe.
One such example is the 2002 documentary movie Lost in La Mancha’s behind-the-scene ended up recording the neglect and the collapse of the feature movie; it covered The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
But ultimately, the BTS video was the only part of the production to see a money-oriented release as a dramatic documentary feature.
That’s why fans aren’t allowed to see the behind the scenes of any movies on the big screen.
One more reason for that is that sometimes getting a glance through the curtains of the movies can sometimes spoil the whole magic behind the film, but sometimes it can even let fans appreciate the hard work put in to make a particular movie.
Either way, it changes everything!
