Making Dr. Manhattan

Yahoo! Movies has a nice new featurette up about creating Dr. Manhattan in Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen.”  There are also a few production journals from production designer Alex McDowell, costume designer Michael Wilkinson, illustrator Dave Gibbons, director of photography Larry Fong, Snyder, etc.  Very interesting stuff.  Check it out here.

These kinds of in-depth craft features are becoming a staple.  Two weeks ago we told you about the Apple exclusive on those Set to Screen “Australia” featurettes, which could go a long way toward directing attention to the work of these folks.  Kind of like DVD special features let loose on the net.  I’m betting you see more and more of this during the awards season as studios get wise to the value of peeling back the curtain and embossing the craft particulars of their films.
