THE MAKING OF SHOGUN
Shogun, a benchmark production from the golden age of the television miniseries, was a monster of a miniseries, a behemoth 9-plus-hour odyssey into 16th century Japanese feudal culture. It was a stunning and lavishly produced film that became the television event of the year, perhaps the decade. The film’s director, Jerry London, created an epic Golden Globe-winning saga based on James Clavell's bestselling epic that has become an enduring classic film.
Jerry London has had filming experience in Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, and world wide directing dozens of television films and series. He has worked with over thirty academy award-winning actors.
The MAKING OF SHOGUN is a 90-minute documentary about the award winning mini-series Mr. London developed with Paramount Pictures. It includes stills and live action plus interviews with Mr. London, Richard Chamberlain, John Rhys Davies, Andy Lazlo the Director of Photography and Producer Eric Bercovici.
