+ - Cinematographers on a motherf%$&ing plane

Submitted by
adam writes "The American Cinematographer is running an article regarding the technical challenges taken on by cinematographer Adam Greenberg in shooting Snakes on a Plane. Incorporating lighting into existing locations in the fuselage, and keeping the ceiling, walls, and floor intact (and visible in shots simultaneously), helped to enforce verisimilitude. The article goes on to explain the unusual types of lights he sourced for the interior, and how as the storyline became more and more dark, the lighting becomes increasingly spotted and contrasty. The ASC provides a rare look into just a bit of the effort that truly goes into a big budget film."
