NP has just announced the launch of an new site called MakingOf, a "behind the scenes web portal" designed to provide civilians like us a inside look into the making of movies. There are a few interviews up, including this one with Aaron Sorkin, and a collection of backstage stuff from upcoming releases. While at the moment the site could do with a little more content I think the basic idea is sound: a Web home for the discussion of craft as opposed to just another hype and rumor driven blog. I'd advise the site's keepers to link to on set blogs and Twitter feeds from as many working actors and filmmakers as possible to give the site a sort of "you are there" feel that no one else has.
