Frederick Elmes: Shooting in the Woods

From American Cinematographer, A Less-Than Civil War by Douglas Bankston (November 1999)

The tight confines of the woods, however, required a different technique.

"We'd try to find locations that had a pathway nearby, so we could build a dolly track and just push the camera along really fast for a short run. If you're clever, you can shoot one scene off one side of the dolly, and then turn the camera around and do the same dolly move while shooting in the opposite direction, because you have great woods on the other side as well."

-Frederick Elmes, ASC
