Incredibly Difficult Steadicam Shot From the End of the Movie “Hugo”


Over the last couple of weeks we’ve featured two very impressive cinematography shots, one from the movie “Contact” and another from “Sucker Punch.” But while both of those required planning, expertise and, for one of them, some help from the digital age, the final steadicam shot from the movie “Hugo” is impressive in an entirely different way.

It’s not generated by a computer, and it’s not a shot that you might take any notice of when you watch the movie. What it is, however, is a testament to phenomenal camera work, because the whole thing is comprised of one long and very difficult shot that had Larry McConkey sighing in relief when it was over. This video offers a behind the scenes look at that shot from start to finish.
