When cinematographers mess up


This is a screen cap from BMW’s “The Hire”. This short film, “Hostage”, was directed by¬† John Woo (if I remember correctly). If you notice in the middle of the shot you can clearly make out the jib and camera’s shadow from the sun (Also the cables running along it). I haven’t ever noticed this until now and this shot gets cut to and taken away pretty quick so it’s not too noticeable, however they’ve lost a notch in my belt as this should have been prevented.
