Gone Girl Features Liberal use of Pacific Motion Talon Head

A recent American Cinematographer Magazine article highlighted the extensive use of the Talon head from Pacific Motion. Jeff Cronenweth, ASC used the Talon head for precise camera movement in tight setups. Said Cronenweth, “In this kind of movie, it is all about the intimacy of the camera with the characters”. The Talon provides extreme precision and ability to be operated remotely, in a compact and quiet package that allows the camera to be placed very close to actors without the intrusion of an operator.

American Cinematographer has featured Pacific Motion’s work and equipment several times. Check out the magazine at www.theasc.com.
