Jeff Pruitt’s Behind The Scenes Video of BtVS
So here is behind the scenes home video look at Buffy the Vampire Slayer circa Season 2. The video is unimportant. What intrigued me was the description which you can see after the jump.
"During season 2 we were trying to promote the show so I had various crew and cast members talk to the camera directly to the fans. This was a time before anyone was a star and nobody was the god of his own universe yet. There was no infighting or jealousy among crew members. Everybody supported each other’s work. The thing that strikes me most looking back at this (aside from how young we all are) is how innocent it was then; a much different atmosphere than in later high pressure years of the show."
This reminded me of a comment of Joss Whedon on one of his interviews about the perception that Buffy was one big happy family. And it was wrong. And that were tension on the set. So I did a little bit of digging and found that Jeff Pruitt was fired from the show at the behest of “the Princess” Sarah Michelle Gellar. Now, I’m no hater. If you know me, I am in fact a big fan of BtVS so I find these old “gossips” that I wasn’t aware of during the original run quite fascinating. Read about it here and here.
