Ren production diaries
“Thank you so much for sharing these really humorous and informative videos. It is really cool being able to witness the camaraderie of the performers and the production staff. One usually doesn’t get to witness even a small portion of the trials and tribulations that occur when making a show. Watching these videos has really opened my eyes to all the work necessary to make these videos. I can hardly wait to watch the series!!!” – tedbade (Kickstarter backer)
Want to immerse yourself in the world of Ren? Wish you could have been there on the shoot? Now we’re offering the chance to become a virtual crew member. Go beyond the glimpses in the YouTube ‘making of’ videos and witness the creation of Ren: Season One from the first day of shooting to the last.
For $25 (about £18 or 22 Euros) you’ll get access to our series of 36 daily behind-the-scenes videos following the making of the web’s most ambitious and exciting new series. To avoid spoilers, only the diaries from days we shot episodes 1-4 are available right now but all will be available from the 1st April once all the episodes have premiered.
“Everyone has put an amazing amount of work into this production. I loved watching the BTS clips. Thanks so much for putting these together for those of us who cannot be there to see Ren’s birth first hand.” – Jelliott2K (Kickstarter backer)
Each video is different. Some take a fly-on-the-wall approach, letting you sit back and watch scenes evolve from rehearsals through to shooting. Many feature candid on-set interviews with the cast and crew. Some are light-hearted, featuring bloopers and impromptu sketches shot between takes. Some are more educational, explaining, for example, how scenes are “covered” with multiple camera angles. One video even takes you on a tour of Ren Studio as the cast and crew wait for rain to pass.
“I really enjoyed all the videos and I’m eagerly looking forward to the release of Season 1. To take a look behind the Scenes was great. And to see the passion in everyones work is worth every single Pound” – Peter Penkalla (Kickstarter backer)
With a total running time of over 2 hours, the Ren Daily Diaries offer unprecedented VIP access to the inner workings of a large-scale fantasy production.
“Thanks for such an amazing explanation! I didn’t appreciate just how much goes into what appears as a simple scene on screen.” – nevla (Kickstarter backer)
