"The Marketplace", By Valentin Monge

Excellent shot. Beginning with an amazingly slow and steady descent on a crane, moving into an incredibly smooth step-off, the shot winds through the marketplace, seeking out the actors.

This shot required some incredible choreography, obviously. One great moment is as the actress stops to ask one of the vendors a question, there is a rock solid lock-off. The addition of the action of the lettuce tossing in the immediate foreground is one of those elements that made an ordinary lock-off, extraordinary.
