Yes, interesting, but what's with the cameraman hooping around like Gollum


Besides being unedited, the footage is shot off the shoulder, perhaps thats the style the director wanted or likes. So its the directors call how something is shot. And the cameraperson follows instructions, He did a good job of shooting it I think. And Im sure the Director would have had a monitor(little TV screen thing) or would have some knowledge of lens sizes and it is possible to tell what size shot is being filmed when.

Personally I think this style of camera work has been overused, remember Hill Street Blues, it all started with that show. To give the show a kind of immediacy, or gritty reality.

Anyway if you dont like it blame the director not the cameraperson.
