Baz Luhrmann’s Set to Screen series on iTunes

Among the free podcast gems on iTunes, Baz Luhrmann’s Set to Screen series stands out as a fine look at behind-the-scenes filmmaking. The series takes the viewer through all the major aspects of shooting a film.

Luhrmann shot the 2008 Australia with Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman. Luhrmann chose the remote northern outback of Australia for the film. In this series he walks the viewer through choosing locations, cinematography, doing on set photography, editing, music and sound design, costume, and production design. Each video in the series runs for about 10 minutes.

If you’re teaching filmmaking, or need a few clips to illustrate some element of the process, you couldn’t find a more compelling presentation. Add the grandeur of the Australian outback, and you’ve got a winner.
