A memorable continuous five-minute steadicam shot recreating the Dunkirk evacuation during WWII. The shot used over 1000 extras and had to be completed in one day due to budget constraintsThey did four takes of it on the fourth take the operator’s legs gave in and they had to stop.
That is a cool shot alright, haven’t seen that film in years.
I have an idea for a short that would involve something similar to this shot from Casino, http://www.steadishots.org/shots_detail.cfm?shotID=37 . Basically the same shot except in reverse. Don’t know if it’s possible though? Anybody here done anything similar to it?
Lovely shot too. There’s a lovely flow in those crane step-offs. I could see no problems doing that shot in reverse, though your steadicam guy would need a good spotter! The crane would be an expense too. Now that I think about it, I don’t recall seeing a crane step-on – but I’m thinking it must be possible.
Tough one to get right all right, Definitely looks like a stedi-cam stepping off a crane, It would be easier to step off instead of I imagine, getting the timing right with the crane operator would be tough if you were stepping on, ie timing revolves around crane for this shot, it would be the other way around for a reverse so crane would need to be on the mark.
