Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
If there’s one positive aspect of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull it’s that it’s made a lot of people appreciate just how awesome Temple of Doom is. The much maligned sequel (technically prequel) has long been a personal favorite of mine and it’s been with great joy that I’ve seen a surge of love for the flick, the only Indiana Jones sequel that tries something different and isn’t chasing Raiders of the Lost Ark.
It’s dark, it’s unapologetically gory and it wants to be a huge thrill ride, to the point where Spielberg literally turns one action sequence into a rollercoaster ride.
And that mine cart sequence is the focus for today’s photo, which gives an insight into how they filmed the live action elements. Phil Tippett did some stop motion work as well (using a refitted 35mm still camera instead of a standard motion picture camera, no less) to make this sequence come to life, but today’s shot features on the live action element.
I love the intensity on Ford’s face and that Short Round edges into the shot! Enjoy the pic and click it for the mega big version!
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic remembers its Charlemagne!
