“Mad Max: Fury Road” is essentially one awesome, mind-boggling car chase, but it’s even more spectacular when you realize how it was done.

The 2015 Oscar-winning “Mad Max” sequel from the franchise’s visionary director, George Miller, used a lot of practical effects and relatively minimal CGI to create its post-apocalyptic action.

You can see that at work in this new “Crash & Smash” video compiling pre-production tests, behind-the-scenes video, and raw footage from the film that hasn’t been edited. The footage was created by Space150 for Warner Bros. and is also included on Blu-ray and digital editions of the film.

There is no CGI anywhere in the video, which is something worth chewing on next time you watch “Fury Road.”

Below is the video and see some special CGI-free shots from the making of “Mad Max: Fury Road”:
