Crafting a movie monster walks a fine line between terrifying and silly, and two new video features depict how "Godzilla" settled on its execution of the radioactive lizard. The first hails from the New York Times' Anatomy of a Scene series, which this time finds director Gareth Edwards discussing how the breathtaking skydiving halo-jump scene came to be.

The second feature is a Yahoo clip that explores how sound designers Erik Aadahl and Ethan Van der Ryn (who previously worked on "Transformers" and "Kung Fu Panda") put together Godzilla's deafening roar. The duo began to work on it three years ago, and they still refused to tell Edwards what noises when into compiling the clamor. "I don't think we've ever felt this protective over a sound that we've done," Van der Ryn said. "To dissect it would be almost like taking Godzilla apart, and right now we're not ready to do that."
