Saving Private Ryan’s Beach Scene on the Cheap

Ever wondered how Steven Spielberg did his famous beach scene from the WWII movie “Saving Private Ryan”? It’s Hollywood, so that means a mega budget, thousands of extras, and enough technical gadgets to make 100 war movies. But wait — can three guys, given four days, a digital video camera, and a whole lot of technical know-how pull it off? See for yourself!


Dale has brought my attention to a short video clip of three graphic designers and how they managed to recreate D-Day on a tiny budget for an episode of the BBC history show Timewatch.

Holy crap. That’s impressive!
