DEFIANCE POLICE SHOOT OUT

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.
