DEFIANCE POLICE SHOOT OUT

 

2nd Unit Director Alan Munro
Studio Paramount Vantage
Director Edward Zwick

No sets here. The police station, interior and exterior, was located just outside Vilnius, Lithuania (spitting distance from where these events actually took place). Every part of this sequence was achieved in camera — the muzzle flashes, the squib hits, even the stuttered-image photographic effect. The last shot — the car headlights through the trees — wasn’t planned; I snatched it as the car turned around. You take ‘em where you can get ‘em.

DANGEROUS BEAUTY MAIN TITLESxxx

 

Designer/Supervisor Alan Munro
Producer Brian Jochum
Studio Warner Brothers
Director Marshall Herskovitz

A simple title sequence set in the world’s most beautiful city, populated with boatloads of half-naked beautiful women. What’s not to like? Seriously, this is a personal favorite. Gallons of perspiration was shed over the relationship between the images, the music, the voice-over, and the credits; I think it shows. Also, it’s got a really nice matte painting of 16th Century Venice. Not many people have seen this film, which is a shame.

DEFIANCE FIREFIGHTxxx

 

2nd Unit Director Alan Munro
Studio Paramount Vantage
Director Edward Zwick

Originally part of a longer battle sequence, this section was cut from the final film. It was shot in the dim light of a single Lithuanian winter afternoon. 1st Unit was filming alongside, which confined us to very few angles and very minimal coverage (they kept stealing our extras). Limitations aside, I’m rather proud of it. Don’t blame master editor Steve Rosenblum for this assemblage; this is strictly my cut.

More 2nd Unit work from Defiance can be seen here and here.
