Get closer to 'Her' with new behind-the-scenes featurette

“Gravity” may still be my favourite of the Best Picture nominees by a long chalk, but there’s no film I’m happier to see in the mix than “Her” — Spike Jonze’s wistful 21st-century love story was perceived by many as being a little too cool for the Academy, but its healthy haul of five nominations suggests its bittersweet charms may not be quite as socially or generationally specific as you might think. Meanwhile, I’m glad voters also noticed what an immaculately crafted piece it is: those nominations for Best Production Design and Original Score are among my favorites of this year’s field.

For those of you still enraptured by the film, then, this nifty behind-the-scenes featurette is a bit of a treat, offering some genuine insight into Jonze’s unusual creative process across various stages of production, and capturing the film’s intimate, hand-made quality. Lovely stuff — check out the embed above.
