BOSPOAT - Best On Set Photo Of All Time: In Too Deep

Posted By Administration, Thursday, August 3, 2017

This issues Best On-Set Photo of All Time comes to us from the camera of PGA member Richard Gladstein, producer of such films as The Cider House Rules, Finding Neverland and Quentin Tarantino’s most recent feature The Hateful Eight, which provided the setting for the shot you see above. That’s three-time Oscar-winning DP Robert Richardson in the foreground, gazing stoically outside the frame, perhaps admiring some of the majestic scenery that provides a vital counterpoint for Tarantino’s characteristically brutal story.

As Gladstein shared with Produced By back in 2015 just prior to The Hateful Eight’s release, weather was by far the production’s biggest challenge. Whether it was the threat to their horses’ legs posed by the depth of the snow and the rocky terrain beneath, or the sheer amount of manpower required to re-set a snowbound stagecoach for a second take, the harsh conditions of the Telluride, Colorado locations repeatedly tested the patience and ingenuity of the team. (Protip: If driving horses through deep snow, pack the white stuff down as much as you can without undermining your shot. Your horses will thank you.)

While Richard is an accomplished producer, the masterful framing of this image suggests that he could have pursued an alternate career as a cinematographer. Or maybe a person just picks up those skills by osmosis when they spend enough time around Bob Richardson. However he got it, its a stunning pic. Produced By is grateful for his sharing it with us. 


We know what youre thinking. Best of all time? No way. Ive got an on-set photo way better than that.If thats the case, we dare you to prove it. Submit it to BOSPOAT@producersguild.org.
