They Used Typewriters? And Other Epic Behind the Scenes Snaps from Raiders of the Lost Ark

A few months ago I went to see the iMax version of Raiders of the Lost Ark. It was phenomenal and remains to this day as one of my top ten all time favorite movies. Which is why I was thrilled to find this excellent collection of behind the scenes photos of the making of the movie on Screencrush via Kottke.

It’s hard to believe, but screenplays were written on typewriters. Which speaks to my consistent mantra that it’s the content, not the process that matters in writing. But that’s another sermon for another time.

Why, hello there.

This is PhotoCine News. The definitive blog about the collision between filmmaking and photography. It was started in 2010 by Michael Britt and Lou Lesko the same people who created the PhotoCine Expo.

PCN had a fantastic run for about three and half years. Now it remains as an archive for the internet though the generosity of BlinkBid Software. The industry standard software for bidding, producing, and invoicing photography and motion gigs.

Have a fabulous day.
