The Cameras of Skateboard Documentary 'Waiting for Lightning'

Publish date:

Michael Svitak, one of the cinematographers on skateboarding documentary Waiting for Lightning, breaks down the myriad of cameras that were used to film it. He writes, "Waiting for Lightning, a documentary about pro skateboarding pioneer Danny Way, began production in 2008 with director Jacob Rosenberg at the helm slinging a cumbersome Sony XDCAM on his shoulder shooting B-Roll with its star at the Mega Ramp in Tehatchape, CA. The final frame was shot with a Lomokino Super 35 Movie Maker in April 2012 on the island of Kauai, HI. Over the course of those four years, the documentary would embrace the modern evolution of camera systems to complete the project."
