"Train Station Chase", By Patrick de Ranter
This shot begins with some great low mode running through a train terminal. It cuts outside where the tracking of the subjects continues using a couple very nice low mode shots vehicle mounted. The shot then cuts to a great crane descent into a close-up.
J-P Jeunet wanted a very low-mode shot. The shot was fast and difficult to synchronize with the actors and the stuntmen. I had decide to put my Steadicam on a dolly called "baby-boule" (see equipment). The key-grip was very good, the stuntmen too. I think we did 3 takes....one of my best souvenir on this film...
Steadicam 3A in low-mode on a "baby-boule" dolly. It's a 3 wheels dolly very light that the dolly-grip can drive from both sides. It's built in France by Cinesyl. The camera was an ARRI 535 B. For me it was the only good way to make the shot and everyone was very happy with it.
