Ran across this awesome behind the scenes snippet from the filming of Hugo. The Steadicam op Larry McConkey mounted a GoPro to his rig, and captured a long single-take scene. It’s a masterclass in deceptively-simple, thoughtful Steadicam operating, and you can see the intricate level of blocking and planning that went into this 360-degree scene (watch the wall move so they can slide in behind the chair). Also keep an aye on the audio boom guy…he’s working his butt off as well. This sort of stuff is just inspiring filmmaking. Watch below.
