For a dream sequence, cinematographer Thomas Burstyn
came up with the idea of having two cameras - one with color film, the other infrared black & white - shoot the exact same image, and then combining them in post-production.

This became known as the "Crazy Horse" or "Over/Under" rig, and is still available for rental at Clairmont. See more
