How Kubrick Made 2001: A Space Odyssey - Part 6: Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite [A]

In this episode of his series on the making of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, CinemaTyler takes a look at the first half of the “Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite” sequence including: how Douglas Trumbull created Jupiter, scrapped ideas for how to begin the Stargate, the origins and construction of the “slit scan” effect, how Kubrick created massive cosmic events with ink, paint, and banana oil, how Bryan Loftus changed the F-Stop of photographic layers during the Technicolor process to create the bizarre colors they used for the landscape shots, and the “City of Lights” effect that was ultimately cut from the film.
