Who wouldn’t have paid money to sit in on some of the production meetings for the Tesla Roadster, the iPhone, or the Raiders of the Lost Ark movie? That’s part of the thrill of backing a Kickstarter project- you can be! This post by David Alden about visiting the Hong Kong factory which is manufacturing his Recoil Winders is a great peak behind the curtain. Can’t wait to get mine delivered.
It never occurred to me before watching these videos, but working camera and grip has on a Wes Anderson movie must be a little trying, compared to logging time in those departments on a Quentin Tarantino set. Witness kogonada’s compilations of all of Wes Anderson’s shots from above and Tarantino’s from below.
