New Raiders Filmumentary behind scenes film released

Great news for Raiders of the Lost Ark fans as James Benning releases his Filmumentary using lots of deleted scenes and audio interviews and behind the scenes footage to create something quite special.

Jamie Benning is an outstanding human being. The man behind the fan-made video commentaries for the original Star Wars trilogy – ‘Star Wars Begins’, ‘Building Empire’ and ‘Returning To Jedi’ – he’s poured hours, days, weeks, months into collating and cutting together videos that illuminate and educate would-be Jedi knights about the ways of The Force. Well, the ways of the people who made A New Hope, Empire and Jedi, anyway.

Benning returns with another fantastic ‘filumentary’ in the form of ‘Raiding The Lost Ark’, doing the same thing for – you guessed it – Raiders Of The Lost Ark. As he explains in his exclusive blog below, the task was nowhere near as easy as it was for Star Wars, requiring him to get his dictaphone and find out the facts from the appropriate horses’ mouths.

So here’s your chance to have a read of how he did it, then take a look at the final product at the very end. And to find out more about Mr. Benning and the wonderful work he does, head to his website,, where you can see posters, stills, and much, much more. You can also follow him on Twitter (@jamieswb) and see more of his videos on his Vimeo page.
