Watch: Stellar Shot-by-Shot Breakdown of the ‘Raiders’ Desert Chase

Looking for a little motivation about ways to make a classic action scene? See this outstanding shot-by-shot breakdown video of the “Desert Chase” scene from Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, made by Greek editor/ filmmaker Antonios Papantoniou. Papantoniou makes a lot of these shot-by-shot breakdowns, however this is among the very best videos for a really renowned action scene. The chase happens in Raiders approximately midway through when the Nazis attempt to remove with the Ark, and Indy (Harrison Ford) pursues them. This is an extremely extreme, comprehensive breakdown talking about actually every last element – the shots, lenses, motions, whatever. Dang, after this video, I simply wish to enjoy all the Indiana Jones movies in a back-to-back marathon. Classics.
Thanks to Phil Szostak by means of Twitter for the suggestion on this. Video direct from Vimeo. Consists of information about: The Type Of Shots, The Camera Angles, The Camera Movements, The Duration Of Shots, The Type Of Lens, and The Number Of Cuts. This breakdown video is made by Greek video editor Antonios Papantoniou Discover more of his work and shot-by-shot breakdown videos on his Shot-by-Shot site here. Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark was very first launched in 1981, including cinematography by DP Douglas Slocombe and modifying by Michael Kahn. You can enjoy the complete Desert Chase scene uncut here. I want Papantoniou would do a complete breakdown of the whole series and launch a DVD or something. Excellent. Who else enjoys this scene?
