Mad Max: Behind the Scenes
To celebrate the release of Mad Max: Fury Road, let’s take a behind-the-scenes look at the history of George Miller’s explosive approach to filmmaking.
Before 1979, words like dystopian and post-apocalyptic weren’t commonly used in Hollywood. Then came George Miller and Mad Max, which was set in a world at the onset of an energy crisis. That world was soon devastated by global war in Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. Finally, Miller would move us fifteen years past The Road Warrior to a time when all that’s left are small barter outposts and large metropolitan ruins in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Now that George Miller is finally bringing us a new Mad Max, we thought it would be great to look at his process of crafting the original trilogy compared to Fury Road. You’ll find that he takes a very similar practical approach, doing as much in-camera as possible.
