Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
One of the things I look out for in these pics are those that I can share in mega-giant size. A lot of these, scanned from 30 year old magazines or photos of photos aren’t all that big pixel-wise, which means it might look good on the page, but won’t be able to be expanded. Some of these pics are just too good not to share. Sometimes, though, there are great shots that are also big enough to be computer backgrounds.
Today’s image from The Dark Knight is one of those. It’s the best of both worlds, a great shot in mega huge res… and from a moment that particularly stands out from a movie filled with great, stand-out moments.
One thing that is particularly interesting to me about this shot is that I don’t often see two boom mics used during filming. I’ve been on a lot of sets and I don’t remember ever seeing multiple booms, especially not in a close quarters set like the interrogation room.
But more than anything I see this photo and wish I could have been there. This is real movie magic happening here, a scene that will be remembered for decades by film fans the world over, with some of the best actors and filmmakers of our generation. It’s a great shot.
Thanks to David Sargeant for sending this one along! Enjoy the pic and click to embiggen!
