If you've seen Hugo, you may remember the film's final shot in which the camera weaves through tight hallways and rooms full of actors without any edits for over two minutes. It's an amazing tracking shot that looks like a crane shot. In reality, it was a tracking Steadicam shot, expertly executed by Steadicam operator Larry McConkey.
Here's a behind-the-scene look at that incredible tracking shot, taken from a GoPro camera mounted on top of the actual camera used. Watch the boom mic too as it follows the camera. Like a beautiful dance sequence. Seriously. At the end of the shot, you can hear McConkey let out a sigh of relief. Can't blame him. Beautiful work!
I'm also amazed at all the special effects used to bring Hugo to the big screen. It takes a village or three to make a movie.
