Michael Mann and the studios have embraced the latest trend of releasing B-Roll footage, which gives us an inside look into Blackhat’s ungraded image of the scenes.
Here are two further behind the scenes of Blackhat, for those who just have to know more! The second link goes to a video that displays an interesting, surprisingly minimalist use of lighting of a scene, if you follow the link below – it features Wei Tang and Hemsworth. I would love to see specific […]
My fellow Michael Mann enthusiast, Fabio Pirovano, posted in 2013 this behind the scenes look at the making of the Keep (well done, Fabio!). but Mann also talks about his other works to that date. It offers fascinating insight into Mann’s directing style with his actors – something that these days he just would not put […]
After a trawl though the cyber wilderness that is the internet, there is surprisingly little to give away Michael Mann’s shooting of Blackhat. There are a few morsels to chew on, for those hungry to get some glimpses of how this film will eventually look. There is a low risk spoiler alert with this post. There […]
One of the first images made public from Michael Mann’s Blackhat is of Holt McCallany and Chris Hemsworth sweeping a cargo hold area. A strange choice.

It is being produced by Legendary Pictures. Legendary […]
For as long as it is allowed on YouTube, here is “The Making of Ali” behind the scenes footage. All three parts here for your convenience, especially if you don’t own the DVD.
Whilst browsing around I fell onto the topic of location for Michael Mann movies. Lots of previous posts feature locations, but here are a few for your interest. No doubt over time this post will grow as I add more links. To get you in the mood, see below a CBS news piece on being […]
Always great to find something new. I found this amazing YouTube clip of the Miami Vice film crew shooting the racing boat scenes that were supposed to feature at the start of the movie. I have only ever seen the original movie version and have only Standard Def DVD, so never saw the spoken of […]
