Cameraman Intern Day 3

by alexmasonphotography

Today was my birthday and was a long day of shooting. I started at 9 and finished at 1am after shooting the night scenes. There were a lot of extras there too and lots going on. It was the first time I had felt a bit of pressure. Although it wasn’t just up to me whether the scene went well, I did feel a lot of responsibility.

One of the scenes we shot at night was challenging because of things like reflections in windows and the fact that it needed to be shot all in one a bit like this scene in the video clip below taken from the film Boogie Nights.

Watch from 0:43 and observe how the camera never cuts to a different scene, it is all shot in one take and the viewer gets to follow the action around the party
