Great presentation from Mr. Trumbull tonight. He showed many behind the scenes photos recently unearthed from the Kubrick archive that I'd never seen before ( no photography at the presentation were allowed but it was recorded for posterity ) - the Orion receiving final tweaks from a modeller with the "collar" of the 15' Discovery on a shelf above his right shoulder. The Moonbus on its TMA landing pad with the support stand visible. A couple of shots of the Aries 1B with three model makers standing around - it looks almost finished but un-painted. Several shots of the 15' Discovery in an earlier incarnation getting kit parts attached - Trumbull said that a bunch of art students were employed in shifts running around the clock detailing the models.

I got the feeling that many of these shots will appear in the upcoming book being put together by Dave Larson. Unfortunately, he informed us that Warners have pulled the plug on the 2001 documentary the he was planning - both financially and from a rights standpoint.

He also informed us that the 17 minutes that Kubrick cut from 2001 shortly after the film's release have been found by Warners in their vault in a salt mine in Kansas. These cut scenes are perfectly preserved in CMY component negatives. Trumbull has no idea of what Warners plans to do with them.

I hope someday(future dvd release of 2001) that we get to see those 17 minutes of Kubrick's 2001 that were cut.

Almost all of the shots Doug Trumbull has used in his talks and on his website are taken from the various collections Dave Larson has unearthed over the years, so yes, they'll all be in the book.

I personally don't mind if you link this.

Here's an article about the cuts:

Trumbull stated that the log of the missing negatives were on an Excel spread sheet that had to be scrolled horizontally in order to see them - off the page as it were.

The additional footage from 2001: A Space Odyssey has always existed in the Warner vaults. When [director Stanley] Kubrick trimmed the 17 minutes from 2001 after the NY premiere, he made it clear the shortened version was his final edit. The film is as he wanted it to be presented and preserved and Warner Home Video has no plans to expand or revise Mr. Kubrick’s vision.”
