The carfully choreographed action scene

Camera operator George Richmond received the 2012 Historical Shot award from the Society of Camera Operators for this long sequence known as, "The Siege of Bexhill." Richmond explains how he had the camera strapped to his body and how he had to run frontward and backward to capture the movements of Faron, played by Clive Owen, as he runs through a refugee camp.

The hand-held camera has become a staple of today’s filmmakers who want to exploit the indexical nature of the film camera and give the audience a sense of war as audience members know it: through the media.
