In 2015, director George Miller brought an action masterpiece to cinemas. And if the world needed more proof, footage of “Mad Max: Fury Road” sans any CGI is making rounds, which only demonstrates that the film is spectacular even in its raw state.

“Mad Max: Fury Road” received more 2016 Academy Awards than any other film, particularly in the technical categories. Despite not taking home Best Picture, the film was awarded Best in Costume Design, Film Editing, Makeup and Hairstyling, Production Design, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing. At the end of the night, Miller’s team walked away with six out of 10 awards.

With these awards alone, it is evident just how much attention was given to the creation of the film, which only helped make it such a stunning piece to watch. But for those who are still doubtful of the film’s bare beauty, YouTube user ESPORTS TV created a four-minute clip as evidence of the same.

Watch: “Mad Max: Fury Road” raw footage

As Uproxx reports, the genius behind “Mad Max: Fury Road” was partially because of Miller’s refusal to rely on modern technology to get a good shot. Instead, he pushed his team to their limits in terms of stunts, set staging, prop creation and acting. The short clip above is only verification of this.

The behind-the-scenes footage showed just how independent the film was from technology. The crashes were real, as were the explosions and stunts. Evidently, hardly any green screens and other Hollywood magic tricks were used to create the mesmerising film. The action and chase scenes of “Mad Max: Fury Road” were particularly stunning and jaw dropping.

“Mad Max: Fury Road” was also the platform in which noteworthy performances from Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron were seen. Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Zoe Kravitz were also part of the cast.
