In our minds, we’ve gone to Indiana.
On this week’s episode of Shot by Shot, the official cinematography podcast of One Perfect Shot and Film School Rejects, we’re talking one of the most iconic films of the 1980s and in fact all-time, Steven Spielberg’s intellectual adventure flick Raiders of the Lost Ark, which introduced the world to Indiana Jones.
Shot by Douglas Slocombe, a three-time Oscar-nominee – including for his work here – Raiders combines old-school storytelling with modern-day filmmaking, creating, as a result, a classic and eternal film that continues to delight and inspire each new generation of film fans.
If this is your first listen to our show, the format’s simple: each week Geoff and I each pick a few shots from a certain film and discuss their effect and significance. Check out our previous episodes:
- 2001: A Space Odyssey
- Mad Max: Fury Road
- Shaun of the Dead
- The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
- Mulholland Drive
Next week we’re talking about the final film of legendary cinematographer Conrad Hall, Road to Perdition.
