Fascinating ‘Bandersnatch’ featurettes reveal how the most ambitious ‘Black Mirror’ episode was made

Published

on

“There were points where in working stuff out, it got like trying to do a Rubik’s cube in your head, and I had to literally get up from my desk and kind of walk around the house holding my head.”

According to Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker, Bandersnatch was as mind-boggling to make as it was to watch—and he’s got the behind-the-scenes footage to prove it.

Just days after Bandersnatch‘s successful post-holiday streaming debut, Netflix has begun publishing peeks into the interactive movie’s making-of process. From producer Annabel Jones lamenting scrapping her production plan on the first day of filming to snapshots of Brooker’s elaborate story boards, the details in these clips explain some of how the ambitious (and experimental) production was pulled off, giving viewers brand new insight into the latest Black Mirror experience.

So far, Netflix has published two of these featurettes on their YouTube page. The first, showcasing the tech behind the production, is above. The second, showing more of the overall narrative process, can be found here.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more videos since this can only be the tip of the Bandersnatch iceberg—but in the meantime, it’s back to those alternate timelines.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is now streaming on Netflix.

From Latex Strippers to Killing Hitler: Inside Netflix’s Wildest Series

Published

on

Sex isnt included in the title of Love, Death & Robots, the new animated Netflix series from directors David Fincher and Tim Miller (premiering March 15). But that doesnt mean there isnt plenty of R-rated eroticismnot to mention myriad Hitler deaths!to be found in this 18-episode anthology of sci-fi shorts about the strange, surreal and sinister.

Created by Miller (Deadpool, the upcoming Terminator: Dark Fate), who also serves as an executive producer alongside Fincher (Fight Club, Zodiac, Netflixs Mindhunter), Love, Death & Robots is a deliberately diverse affair rife with violence, humor and a healthy dose of sensuality. No matter that its installments are all computer generatedits for adults only, peppered with full-frontal female nudity, intermittent profanity and a dark, demented view of the world, both now and in the future, which is where most of its vignettes are set. Delivering bleakness and black comedy in distilled form via stories that rarely last more than fifteen minutes, its like Black Mirror for the ADD-addled video game crowd.

Interactive games are certainly evoked by two of the six episodes that were provided to press in advance, as both boast the photorealistic environments and admirably lifelike and emotiveif still clearly artificialhuman faces and figures found in AAA title cutscenes. Theres something startlingly authentic about the way vehicles move and physical spaces are rendered in Sonnies Edge, the shows first episode, even though its grimy blacks, greens and reds define the action in somewhat familiar sci-fi terms. Thats true of its narrative as well, about a young, facially-scarred combatant preparing to compete in a fight to the death against a male opponent. The Real Steel-ish catch is that shes not the one doing the actual brawling; instead, she uses mind-meld technology to pilot a giant reptilian creature (its head stretching backwards into a deadly spiked tail) against her adversarys brutish beast………………………………………………………………………”
