Shutter Angle - Sicario (1 reply)

Hey Roger,

I noticed in this BTS video of Sicario that the slate notated 144 degrees shutter. This looked like the action sequence when the truck barrels through the living room. How often do you vary the shutter from 180? I assume this was just because of the intense action of the shot?

You have me there! I think there was a TV in shot and, perhaps, it was the only way we could get the bar to stop rolling! I can't think of another reason to change the shutter on that shot. The lighting was all tungsten and the action was not out of the ordinary.
