Last day of shooting on the tank firing range
• The last day of shooting on the tank firing range
On Sunday, I witnessed the last day of filming of "Life and Fate". This occurred on the tank firing range "Alabino". There was a lot of tanks, snow and all interesting.
The landfill has been very great, after a check point before taking the place we went another 20 minutes on the court, we arrived very early, still in the dark. But the tanks already in all ready to shoot
We arrived before the platform came the main part of the crew. I went to shoot the tanks. Tanks in the snow - it is very beautiful.
to creep to the open hatch of the tank to take a picture of what's inside, when suddenly I heard a heavy blow next to him, I jump up in surprise - a mechanic-tanker blasted wrench on the side of the tank, smiling: "What is terrible?". Silently I go dry pants.
20 minutes later after our arrival there was a convoy of the crew. She recalled a Christmas advertising Coca-Cola "Festival comes to us":
After another half-hour daylight
The tank on all sides
a strange device
Another tank. By the way, what?
First the tanks were standing column
But then came the director and said that the tanks must be different, and they began to rearrange
And put in a staggered manner
Then on the computer of the six tanks make seventy-six
The first scene was pure acting. At just such a rare car on the position of Colonel Novikov come with the Commissioner of the regiment and have a conversation with a tank officer younger
The car GAS
The Colonel Novikov (aka actor Evgeniy Dyatlov) chastises officer
shelf Commissioner (the actor does not know) quieter
The driver Novikov. Machine, incidentally, on the move.
In the meantime, the actors rehearse, make-up artists do their "dirty work"
And it is made of cast-tankers - tankers natural :)
As a result, it turns out
And while the film director Sergei Ursulyak actor puts the problem in his inimitable ironic manner
An administrator group has decided to stretch their legs and juggles sham tank shells
The same shells in boxes
on the double I left to bask in the bus. And then I was told that the tankers (real) allowed after the finish to shoot the scene, get into the tank and take pictures inside, I gladly did.
The tanks are old and if they look well outside, inside pretty gouging
- What took so long to go? - asks the comrades tanker
It was found that not go, because one of the tanks stalled and he tried to get on the road and make a pusher
In the end it picked up to another tank and pulled. Like this:
And then they brought. But that was not me, I along with the crew moved to the shooting location of the second stage
It is dangerous
The group started dinner, and I began to see what other interesting things to shoot. On one of the tanks noticed here is a "gadget"
I looked like extras experimenting with guns :)
One soldier in the field
The last scene is called "Tank attack". Orava tanks line up in order of battle and rush to the enemy. In the pictures is not all arrived
The stage was prepared for a long time. All the old tanks, the plant is not always right, and even in the cold. In general, sync them was not easy. But I managed to sort. Forward!
I had to withdraw after the second double
It looked like this:
It was the last scene. More than a year went shooting this hardest of serial films. Directed into the radio said: "Thank you all shooting is over!" and the whole group began clapping and cheering. Then Sergei Ursulyak got off the bus, Playback, and began to shake hands with everyone. I, too, was under the hand.
He's the main artist paintings
Finally, the group photograph as a keepsake
Even I was a little sad, but what can we say about the people who carried out the shooting of the film more than a year. There are still installation, sound and other pleasures of postproduction.
