Behind the Scenes: Star Trek Into Darkness
The follow-up to 2009′s re-imagined (alternate universe) Star Trek film is probably one of the biggest blockbuster sequels of the 2013 film year. Follow J. J. Abrams as he directs the crew of the USS Enterprise as they fight off a new threat, John Harrison played by Star Trek newcomer, Benedict Cumberbatch. From the looks of the two B-roll videos and behind the scenes footage Star Trek: Into Darkness looks like an instant hit.
I love closely watching behind the scenes footage and picking up what cameras and lighting were used to film a scene. If you look closely at some of the footage you see that several cameras were used including a RED Epic and IMAX camera. Also there is a point in the footage that we see J.J. Abrams himself holding a flashlight horizontally across the camera to achieve the lens flare look that is a signature style of his.
