Behind-the-Scenes: Movie Magic
Update: The links below are now dead. Here is the new link: http://www.joda-entertainment.nl/mm
Over at Slash Film is a super-cool collection of twelve episodes of the 1994 Discovery Channel show Movie Magic;
Snipped from IMDB:
Documentary series dealing with every aspect of special effects in movies, from low-budget make-up to multi-million-dollar computer-generated graphics. The clear presentation includes descriptions of the creation and technical problems of the effects, and interviews with effects technicians, directors, stars and other crew. Each episode deals with one topic, effect or technician (eg theme park rides, CGI, Stan Winston), concentrating on one or more current or recent films. Written by Cynan Rees
Each episode is still a treasure trove of useful information for anyone interested in visual or special effects, prop building, creature fx, and miniatures.
