I love watching behind the scenes from movies and TV shows. They’re just awesome! It makes me appreciate even more the amount of effort and energy that’s being put in creating those few minutes as well as the skill of the actors and actresses who can act under such weird and unrealistic circumstances.
We can always watch The Making Of this action movie or that chick flick on channels like MTV, but I find it quite rare to actually see the effects that they use in television. Sure, there are gag reels and the like, but these demo reels will show us just how the illusions we see in the movies are also being employed in television.
These two reels are brought to us by Stargate Studios.
The first reel was made in 2010. The second was created two years after that. Enjoy!

“Yes, everything is shattered now and I will never see TV the same way.” If that’s the first thing that came to mind after watching those videos, then we’re on the same page. Also, the ones from Grey’s Anatomy and The Walking Dead were awesome! Ha ha!
The effects in TV and the movies are pretty much the same, huh? At least the movies have film locations that they actually go to. Most of these TV actors seem to be stuck in studio after studio after studio!
What they all do is pretty much mind-blowing to me. LOL.
