10th in filming order.
The sun in this shot was an important aspect of it, so we tried hard to get the lens flare
and brightness matched. We were very happy with the result, by using a USB LED snakelight
Blu-Tacked to a Foxtel remote control and shining through a pinhole poked into the
background. How's that for pro equipment!?
This was also another scene we filmed in reverse, as we needed the gun to occlude the light
at just the right place. If you watch this section frame by frame, you'll see the we get
partial and full occlusion at exactly the same point, and to the same degree. Also, the
amount of lens flare is almost identical, which was a happy coincidence. Magical, even if
the gun looks to be as big as the agent's head.
Quite a bit of work was done to create the background image for this one. The original
scene had to have the agent removed and the sun glow replaced where he used to be. Filling
in part of a radial gradient fill is a nightmare.
