I spent the weekend at Mt Wilson near Lithgow NSW watching the making of 5 minutes of The Great Gatsby . it was amazing what goes into 5 minutes of a movie 100+ people 10 trucks of gear a canteen with 6 staff 4 generators just one could run a small town. What also caught my eye was the video cameras been used there were numerous Canon 5D II ? things mounted on massive slide rails things (Im not very video technical ) . While having lunch at the canteen I spoke to one of 8 camera operators and he said the uses of DSLR for video has been the biggest advancement in filming in the last years . He explained that they can use many cameras on a certain clip due to there relative low price .
The use of up to 10 cameras makes it possible to take footage from 10 angles. In the past where using 3 cameras the clip may need to be re shot many time to get thee same effect.
