Time-Lapse Video: Making of ‘Mad Men’ Season 5 Poster Art

An exclusive look at the photo shoot

[Note: Video above does not have sound until the closing frames.] AMC gave AdFreak this exclusive time-lapse look at how the Season 5 poster art came together for Mad Men. It's nice to see they used a practical set, even for everything reflected in the window—it wouldn't have been hard to use computer trickery for that stuff. Very little is known at this point about the plot for the fifth season, although Matthew Weiner did sit down with The New York Times for an interview (published in two parts, here and here) in which he reveals that he actually quit the show when negotiations for extending it got unpleasant—but eventually everything worked out.
