This is the third-to-shortest featurette on the 2-Disc Director's Cut DVD of Beowulf, with a running time of just under five and a half minutes. It consists of interviews, concept artwork, clips of the film and behind the scenes footage. Going over the design and the approach they took to it, this shows drawings from the process, and describe the different ideas that they had for lighting, look and style. Chiang is apparently the man responsible for the latter two, as he is praised by Zemeckis. Everything is explained well, and this is concise and informative, if also a bit promotional, with the massive love-fest that is going on some of the time. The pacing is spot-on, not a moment is wasted and it doesn't go by too fast, either. They do admit that they took a few liberties to make it more dramatic and grand, though it still seems like it was mainly based upon the research. And I personally love the irony of the two clips being shown as they talk about how the 3D is used to enhance the whole, and not only a gimmick, are high on the list of the most gratuitous ones. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know about the subject. 7/10
