So Martin Scorsese wrapped up a documentary about the Rolling Stones this week that also including performances for Bill Clinton's 60th birthday party. It was shot at the Beacon Theatre in NYC and will be released by Paramount next year.

But I was impressed by the the call sheet of the camera department which had apparently had 17 camera packages.

Bob Richardson was the DP
Camera operators included:
Mitchell Amundsen
Pat Capone
Stuart Dryburgh
David Dunlap
Robert Elswit
Chris Haarhoff
Tony Janelli
Lukasz Jogalla
Emmauel Lubeski
Anastas Michos
Declan Quinn
Andrew Rolands
Gerard Sava
John Toll
Ellen Kuras
Andrew Lesnie

Impressive, but I guess they didn't have a quorum

with 30 camera assistants
8 loaders
16 runners

And that was just the camera department.

Arri actually had to build some three-perf movements just to fill out the order. They also subbed glass and other accessories from every house in town to fill out all those camera packages. Our Optimo zoom was there.

I was actually a runner on this show. Imagine the most incredible sight you've ever seen and then multiply that by a hundred. I mean I know Scorsese likes his moving camera, but every single camera was on either a dolly, a crane, or a steadicam. As if the Stones couldn't keep me interested. I believe I carried one 1000ft. mag of film back to the truck in 6 hours, and mostly just sat around and watched Keith Richards try to stand up straight.

There is an awesome shot in the trailer where Mick walks through the rear door of the theater and the crowd is on their feet. He's backlit by a giant red light. It's been so long, I forget what this light was even called, but I know I had never seen it before. It was about 8 feet in diameter. If anyone knows what it was, I'd LOVE to know.

What's interesting is how much of a role Marty plays in the movie. We had no idea during the filming.

I know a couple people who worked on this as runners and loaders. I can't wait to see it. I was still working at CSC when that job went out and holy cooooowwwww they took EVERYTHING. At the risk of sounding even more like a 17-year old stoner kid, it was epic.
