The Shot Behind the Shot: Zombeavers (2014)
I’m working on finishing up an interview with Zombeavers (2014) cinematographer Jonathan Hall for later this week. Here’s a little preview – a behind the scenes set-up showing how Hall pulled off an effect in which an animatronic beaver bursts through the planks of a wooden raft.
The film employed a pair of Arri Alexas – one of which floats above in this shot on a J.L. Fisher 23 crane. Behind the actors you’ll find a 12×12 frame of highlight serving as diffusion.
Continue onward to see the final result.
