Blood Elevator

First video of the Blood Elevator.
This one was taken from Wendy’s perspective as she comes running towards the glass doors.

The Blood Elevator scene was shot on a part of the Elstree Studios in the back where the backdrop with exterior water tank used to be. It was a workshop with a 1/3 scale set and was used for weeks to prepare shots at high speed. Later in 2002, the Big Brother houses were built on that spot.
The filming the scene with Wendy was done on the Lobby set.

The Red Service Corridor is the Green Service Corridor, but painted red with some adjustments. What is immediately noticeable is the service door where Wendy looks at the Blood Elevator has been replaced by a glass entrance door.
The coffee and soda machines have disappeared halfway through, as have the stainless steel workbenches. The clock, sanitary pipes and sprinkler system, the time clock and fire alarm. The service doors below the exit sign are painted dark, also the door on the right to Ullman’s Office with the ‘private’ sign. The floor remains the same color. Halfway through HENRY CALLAHAN’s accounting office, a sheet of plywood has been placed to hang a chandelier. It seems that the beige/yellow coffee machine has remained on the right. This machine can also be seen in the Gray Service Corridor.

Will the Colorado Lounge set fit on Stage 3…?

Reconstructing the Elstree Studios around 1980 was an additional project in addition to making all the Shining sets. I was intrigued where these sets were built.
It couldn’t resist fitting the sets into the Stages and workshops.
I had already managed to fit the kitchen and boiler room into the Enigma building with reasonable success.
The crown jewel of the Shining sets is next: The Colorado Lounge.
That gave an unexpected result….! Check the page

  1. Hi there,

    I just want to say how amazed I am about the great quality and perfect detail in your artworks, well done sir!

    Do you also design for games or other (Commercial) art projects?

    Keep it up!

    1. Hi Paulez,
      Thanks for the compliment!
      No, I don’t make games, but I do have contact with someone who is professionally involved in a Shining experience.
      I’ll let you know when it’s finished.
