yea, four cameras and all actors had cell phones so if two cameras were dangerously close , a person would call each actor , and tell them which direction to flee, and they would have to improv their phone conversation, to copy what the person on the other end was telling them . it was all done on and around 9000 sunset blvd , there was several times that other stars saw our actors and they would have to stay in character which was pretty funny. roger moore and jerry o'connel and a few other people happened to be walking by and started conversations, blowing that days take. and sadly , a person was hit by a car in front of one of the cameras and actor they were following . it was also nuts as jeannie triplehorn would waltz down sunset blvd with a nickel plated revolver after "shooting stellan skaarsgrad " it was a really fun show .
RUSSIAN ARK, on the other hand, was actually one take, and the entire thing was shot on December 23, 2001.
The film was shot in ten takes, ranging from four-and-a-half to just over ten minutes (the maximum amount of film that a camera magazine or projector reel could hold) duration. There are 11 shots total.
"Hitchcock told François Truffaut in the book-length Hitchcock/Truffaut (Simon & Schuster, 1967) that he ended up re-shooting the last four or five segments because he was dissatisfied with the color of the sunset."

It's hard to shoot a feature in two weeks, let alone 2 days, so a lot boils down more to, "what scripts are possible to shoot in a short amount of time." My Dinner with Andre was two people having a conversation at a restaurant, and I think that still took a week to shoot. To me, it's more about the complexity of the story, the number of characters, and the logistics and challenges of the location (or studio).
Awesome, Marc. Please send the article! firstname.lastname@example.org
One of my favorite films ever, considering it's logistics, complexity, etc.!
I actually was the digital camera supervisor and Colorist on "Russian Ark" and have designed the whole setup technical setup around it. We have lit the film in 12 hours, the night before shooting. It was for a more than 2 km long steadycam passage. Then we shot the whole thing next day. It was the fourth take which worked out perfectly. It was a massive technical undertaking, using one of the first Sony F900 available in Europe and some ground breaking Harddiskrecorder from a german company, "directors friend". We Shot mobile, uncompressed HD at a time, when most postproduction houses where still running off HDCAM tapes.
A couple of weeks ago i finished shooting a german feature film starring Ulrich Thomsen as a DP. We had him only available for 9 days, so we have worked on a elaborate multicamera Setup. The whole thing was playing for 80% inside a car, so we managed to setup up to 6 cameras. Since we were quite limited on the budged side, we had to combine everything that came across (RedMX, Scarlet, X35, Canon 5D, Si2K and one EX1). After a tricky gradingsession, everything ended up quite seamlessly. We used the better cameras for the wider shots, and went closer the less resolution the cam had. Finally no one is seeing the difference between the shots:)
VR has not been digitized, and I don't know the status of if and when it ever will be. A lot of 1980s and even 1990s magazines have kind of fallen through the cracks in terms of being available for researchers and fans.
