Legends of the Hidden Temple Season 3 - Behind the scenes video
« on: December 11, 2020, 12:05:14 AM »
Recently, there was a video uploaded to Youtube by one of the producers of the show, David Greenfield. The video shows some of the behind-the-moments during the filming of Season 3, like the belly sliding moat used during the Royal Torque filming day, the rock throwing team game, and even the entire taping of "The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak" episode! This video was a pleasant surprise to me because we never really got any behind-the-scenes videos of the actual taping of the show. The temple run taping was definitely the most interesting part of the video and I recommend watching that part of the video at least. Watching Amanda and Gator run through the temple from the studio perspective is totally different from the final product. First off, you don't hear all the cheering like in the final edit. The temple run almost feels lifeless from this perspective. Another note is it looks like Kirk watches the kids on a TV screen while inside they are inside the temple. Makes sense considering it would be hard for him to commentate on their performance on the farther sides of the temple. I would love to see a behind-the-scenes video for Season 1 considering how chaotic filming this Season was.

Seems like I wasn't the only one who stumbled upon this. An interesting view of the show from a different perspective for sure.

One of the things I always wondered was if there's some screen showing the timer so that the person in the temple can see how much time they have left. From the looks of it they did have a live overlay on a screen with the timer, but it looks too small to be seen from inside the temple. Like you mentioned, seems to mostly be used by Kirk to see from the camera's perspective when his live perspective isn't a good vantage point. I'm guessing the only things the contestants themselves really have to go off of is the intensity of the music and the occasional time check from Kirk's commentary.

Even though the overall feel does lose some magic with no crowd noise, I do find it wholesome seeing the production crew getting excited for them to win.

I want to say that there was an actual timer in the studio for the audience members to view for the temple games and temple run rounds. I'm not sure if there was a timer for the contestants to see, but I'm sure most of the time they were focused on completing the temple since they were racing against the clock. Although some temple runs like Cracked Crown and Lucky Pig would've benefited if the contestants had a timer to view.  :oops:

You can hear at the end of the temple run one of the crew telling Gator and Amanda to keep celebrating and waving to the camera. The same person also tells Gator to take off his helmet as well. You can see Gator and Amanda doing all this stuff in the actual Mussel-Shell Armor episode. Also, one of the crew members says "Dude, you did what I said bro. You were quick man" to Gator at the end.  :mrgreen:

And I'm glad they showed the best episode of Season 3 as well. At least they didn't give us Thornwood Gavel or Snow Cone.   :afro: I really wish there was a video like this for Season 1.

No joke, I kind of want to see a bad temple run from this perspective.  :lol:

LMAO, can you imagine the taping of the Bifocal Monocle episode? The crew were probably pulling their hair offscreen watching Veronica spending half of the temple run time climbing the wall. And then banging their head against the wall when Thomas was pulling the books in the Crypt and running into the same deadends.  :lol:
