Default American Cinematographer article: Vintage Indy

Hey all, as always in cg or post, it is ALWAYS good to know the ins-and-outs of the real-world counterparts to the digital tools and techniques we use daily.

So, regardless of whether-or-not you thought the new Indiana Jones flick was any good or not, here is an article from American Cinematographer magazine covering the cameras, lenses, lights, struggles, and interesting production tidbits from behind the camera:


My favorite part is on the first page, which talks about the "Ultimate Arm", a car-mounted robotic crane.

It gives me some good ideas for shooting my next sequence in Maya
