There's Always Time for More Slaying: New BtVS Behind the Scenes Video

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Videos | June 27, 2013 | Comments ()

A couple of months ago, we posted some fantastic old videos that former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" stunt coordinator Jeff Pruitt uploaded to YouTube. They were mostly behind the scenes practicing stunts for various scenes of the second and third season of the show, and were a quite fun trip back ... fifteen years? Seriously? Christ, I feel like I should be applying for Social Security.

Anyway, Pruitt apparently found another old box in the back of his closet, because he's updated another half hour of old VHS transferred video. It's got a bit more of the frontend this time, even getting a staggeringly young looking Joss Whedon on camera for a bit. Lots of bits and pieces of the actors practicing action scenes, or just screwing around.

Oh, and I forgot, this might be relevant to some of your interests: never before seen new footage of Angel in leather pants! Never say I don't know my audience.

So here you go, trip back down the rabbit hole of memory lane:

    "Slayage", surely...

    Alyson Hannigan: "Do I get to be sexy in the next episode? I might need prosthetics for that."

  • Homestar

    This was really cool to watch. Not enough Giles, but can there ever be enough?

  • denesteak

    this is amazing. This is AMAZING.

    OK, just got done watching this and I have a question: Did SMG never do her own stunts? How come David Boreanaz got to do his own with SMG's stunt double, but never with SMG? Or is it a rule that actors must always be fighting with a stunt double, that there can't be two non-stunt people fighting?

    SMG did do a lot of her own stunts. The thing you have to remember with this video is that the guy doing the filming is engaged to SMG's stunt double. So he's filming his fiancee a lot. In the actual sword-fighting scenes, those are two stunt doubles. Then Pruitt filmed his fiancee practicing with David Boreanaz for Angel's closeups during the fight. He probably didn't film SMG practicing for her fight closeups because they would be with the Angel stunt double and his fiancee wasn't in those scenes.

    Angel's stunt double with the ridiculously different hairline has now been driving me crazy for 15 straight years.

  • Sirilicious

    Do you mean MIke Massa? That's not so different. He was Angel's double for the longest time, so if you just mean the guy in this vid, it's a shame it crippled you for so long.

    Mike Massa is cute. And has a similar enough and respectably sexy hariline.

  • ViciousTrollop

    I'm referring to the double for the end fight scene in Becoming Part 2. I don't know his name. I always found the difference very obvious and distracting in that small scene. Otherwise, I've never had any trouble. The Buffy/Angel stuntpeople were amazing.

  • Sirilicious

    Ah, ok. People were upset at some eps because smg's double was too obvious too. I'm glad that didn't bug me. Plenty of other thnings that did though. Oh, those were the days, analyzing EVERYTHING on a forum of likeminded addicts.

  • BuffyloGal

    The world can never have too much Buffy. Now waiting for her to kick Jenny McCarthy's ass on the vaccination debate.

  • John W

    Amazing all the hardworking folks who help to bring us our beloved shows.

  • Sardonical

    Buffy! I love Buffy-posts!
