WATCH: Director Sam Mendes Takes You Inside the Making of the Incredible Film 1917

For Sam Mendes making "1917" was, as he admits, the most challenging experience of his long, acclaimed career. It was also very special. Nominated for Best Picture and Best Director for this year’s Academy Awards, Mendes set the bar extremely high for himself and his team and especially cinematographer Roger Deakins by filming the whole film as though it is one continuous shot, following two young British soldiers, Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) and Schofield (George MacKay) as they embark on a crucial, extremely dangerous mission, deep behind enemy lines. We saw the film earlier this year (you can read our review here) and their perilous journey takes the two men through trenches, towns, and nature in an intense, visceral experience. Tying this altogether cannot in words - you have to experience it on your own as the camera never leaves the men as they relentlessly move forwards, in a heart-stopping race against time. Anyone can just imagine the complicated nature of this beast and you can find out more about how they made the film in the making of video below:
