Q: What’s the coolest place you’ve ever shot?

Gabriel Marquez
Executive Producer, 
Manhattan

I shot a documentary series in a gold mine in the Western Australian Outback that was both terrifying and exhilarating. It was about a mile underground, took about 45 minutes to drive down to, and was well over 100 degrees with 20 pounds of emergency gear on everyone. It was like shooting on another planet, and gave us a real appreciation of what it means to be a miner.


Dana Offenbach
Producer, 
The Girl Is in Trouble

Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro. This is by far one of the most beautiful and sexiest places I’ve ever been to. Body image doesn’t conform to American standards and the freedom from that is in full effect everywhere you go. That carefree sexiness seeps into your footage naturally.


Bennett Schneir
Producer, 
Ouija

The FedEx sort facility for Cast Away. You’re in this vast building. All around you, above and below, tens of thousands of packages rolling through a never-ending labyrinth that looks like something M.C. Escher and Rube Goldberg dreamed up over beers. What made it the coolest was Zemeckis’ camera following just one single package through the infinite.
