Does anyone know if this film was really shot entirely on a bolex? The reason I ask is because there are long pieces of sync sound in it. I wondered if some of it was shot on a sync camera or if it had all been looped in post? Or something else was done.

I assume the filmstock is plusX? Does anyone know?

love

Freya,

There was a post about this a while ago. A bolex was used for the outdoor shots and a more advanced sync camera (I forget which) for the dialogue. I'll try to dig up the post.

Hey Steve -

The outdoor MOS shots were done with a clockwork Bolex - the rest of the movie was shot with a Arri 16BL (per Christopher Nolan's commentary on the DVD).

You can get Bolexes with 24fps or 25fps crystal motors fitted though, I think...

You can buy an external motor that just screws onto the side of a bolex. It can do a few different crystal speeds.

Did Nolan he use the spring motor on Following or an external motor... does it say?
