Recreated Shining set for commercial

This is quite neat: Channel 4 in the UK has recreated the set of Stanley Kubrick’s horror film The Shining - complete with crew and cast-member look-a-likes - for a TV ad:

Viewers get Kubrick’s point of view as he walks through the set, ending up in his director’s chair as the crew prepare to shoot the famous scene of Danny Torrance, the son of Duvall and Jack Nicholson’s characters, riding round and round the deserted corridors of the Overlook Hotel.

The promo, filmed as a single tracking shot with a cast of 55 actors, was meticulously researched to "remain as faithful as possible to the period in which it was shot and the culture of the British studio in the late 1970s".

To make things easier, I've embeded the clip here.
