After completing Raiding the Lost Ark in 2012, I immediately embarked on a new project, tentatively called Jaws Bites Back. After 16 months of trawling, reading, spooling, skyping, chatting, interviewing, editing and refining, I am pleased to release Inside Jaws, A Filmumentary (2013). As with my other filmumentaries this is a completely unofficial and non profit making project made with a genuine affection for the film. Please share the link with your friends but under no circumstances should you buy or sell this on DVD or Blu Ray.
I would like to extend my thanks to all of the lovely, kind people that helped me on this voyage. In particular Jim Beller (of JawsCollector.com) , a Jaws expert, no, THE Jaws expert was always on call to answer my questions and give suggestions. The Jaws community as a whole really have helped motivate me to keep this project swimming forward and to make a good job of it. You’re a great bunch of people!
For this project I unearthed some unheard interviews with cast members and I conducted some interviews myself. So even you big Jaws fans should find plenty of new things to enjoy!
You can find the final video here.
Below are two of the poster designs. Pete Starling of Electrographica.co.uk put me inside Jaws (Left) and a wonderful pencil “sketch” by Martin Schlierkamp (right). Martin’s final, coloured version should be available in a couple of days.
