Staircases to Nowhere

The Shining was made at EMI-Elstree Studios in 1978-79, directed by Stanley Kubrick.

In 2013 we made a documentary about the making of the film, as told to us by the film’s actual crew.  Our film, Staircases to Nowhere: Making Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’ has been acclaimed as “the definitive 55 minute retrospective on the making of a horror masterpiece”, and the BFI said it was “like being on set with Stanley Kubrick”.
