A Hertfordshire-based screen heritage project has interviewed legendary film producer and director Steven Spielberg in America.

Members of The Elstree Project were in Los Angeles last month to film an interview with Indiana Jones director Spielberg at Amblin Entertainment’s HQ.

The Elstree Project (@elstreeproject) tweeted before Christmas: “We’ve just been to Amblin and filmed our interview with Steven Spielberg about filming at Elstree Studios. Incredible! Such a generous man”

As well as using Elstree for the first three Indiana Jones blockbusters, Spielberg also filmed scenes of Saving Private Ryan in Hatfield on the former British Aerospace factory site – now the University of Hertfordshire’s de Havilland Campus – and returned with Tom Hanks for TV series Band of Brothers.

The Elstree Project is an ongoing oral history project, created in partnership between Howard Berry of the University of Hertfordshire and Bob Redman and Paul Welsh MBE of volunteer group Elstree Screen Heritage.

Since September 2010, veterans of major film and TV productions have been interviewed about their careers and life in the film industry.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of filming at the famous studios in Borehamwood.
