Wow!
26 October 2003 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Here's an amazing short film about someone you've never heard of: the man who works out how to take those traveling shots from impossible angles -- and then does it. Although nominally a promotional film for ICE STATION ZEBRA, we get to see some of the stunt work he does -- shooting skiers from head on while skiing backwards! And some of the risks that don't quite come off -- a low-level flyover shot of Lake Tahoe that has to be redone after the plane doesn't quite clear the trees afterwards. All done for five seconds of a feature, five seconds that might not make it into the picture.
