Saturday Night Live cinematographer Alex Buono details the concept and shoot behind the show's latest opening titles, which celebrates the show's 40th season, and uses in-camera techniques like light writing and freelensing.

He writes, "As an homage to the 40-year history of SNL, we would approach the sequence using in-camera techniques that would be at home just as well in 1975 as 2014.  Nothing that relies on modern post production techniques or other digital trickery (sorry, hyperlapse’ers).  It would be low-fi, analog, optical, vintage, classic."
