Movies Insider has released a ten-minute behind-the-scenes look at the Golden Globe-winning film ‘1917,’ showing the incredible amount of thought, planning, camera work and editing that went into the World War I film that’s made to look as though it was captured in one, continuous shot.
The behind-the-scenes video shows how meticulously Cinematographer Roger Deakins (The Shawshank Redemption, Fargo, A Beautiful Mind, Skyfall and Sicario) and director Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall, Spectre) worked together to plan each and every shot, down to the second. From creating miniature dioramas to plan out the paths of the actors, cameras and lights to the vast array of gimbal and camera setups used, the video covers it all with great snippets of pre-production footage and interviews with the film’s creators.
Do yourself a favor and set some time aside to see the cinema magic that went into this Oscar-contender film.
Since the launch of the EOS R line in 2018, Canon has mostly concentrated its attentions on high-end RF lenses. The RF 85mm F1.2L IS USM is among the very best.
It’s inexpensive, lightweight and will keep going for days on a single battery charge. While it’s not great for video and its wireless image transfer is slow, the D3500 is a simple and un-intimidating camera that’s a great starting point for beginners.
The D780 comes as a belated update to the well-respected D750. We’ve been impressed by what we’ve seen of what’s essentially a mirrored Z6.
Canon’s latest flagship, the EOS-1D X Mark III is a big, fast, tough DSLR that hides an impressively refined mirrorless camera within it. We’ve taken a pre-production model to a basketball game, a low light concert, and even a blacksmith shop. Find out how we think it stacks up.
We’ve been testing the Nikon Z50 extensively and found a lot to like about it. However, the camera’s biggest drawback is probably that it faces such well-established competition.
