Berton Pierce's documentary on the art of models and miniatures, Sense of Scale, is having its world premiere at the Sci-Fi London Film Festival this weekend. The film features interviews with several industry veterans plus behind the scenes videos and imagery.

Berton has provided fxguide with a special deleted scene from the doco discussing the models built for the ill-fated 1987 Dino De Laurentiis version of Total Recall (prior to the involvement of director Paul Verhoeven and Arnold Schwarzenegger) that was to be filmed in Australia. Here, modelmakers Gene Rizzardi and Tony Doublin talk about the miniatures work before the production was canceled.

Watch the deleted scene.

Sense of Scale screens 6pm on Sunday, 6th May at the BFI Southbank in London, and includes a Q&A with Berton Pierce afterwards. You can watch the trailer for the film and buy tickets here.
