Update: You may have noticed that we have returned to just one category as opposed to dividing the forum into 7 different areas. Apparently, it was an unpopular change and returning to the old format will allow posters to find their submissions more easily.

Photos on set with a Mitchell in Action!

Postby action_camera » Wed Jul 23, 2014 6:00 pm

Hello all. I know many love to collect equipment and others documentation. Others collect posters of the great movies and even some collect stills of the famous stars. But for me, it is the photos of the Hollywood equipment in action. I found this forum and yes, the Mitchell camera was a big player. I would like to start a thread about the MITCHELL IN ACTION. Here are my two cents. Anybody else? Let's see your action shots of the Mitchell in her full glory!

Great shot of Orson Wells in his wheelchair on the set of Citizen Kane! He had broke his ankle but that didn't stop him. Here are a couple of more on the set.

Here's a shot from Some Like It Hot [my fav movie] and I chuckle to see the camera rig gently resting on one 2X4 hanging over the water as they shoot the scene. Nobody seems too worried about the camera falling in but I would be! Looks like everyone is having fun~

Wish I owned a Mitchell so I'm just day dreaming at this web site but I can upload some photos with our favorite camera. Great job to everyone who has posted great Hollywood sound stage photos. Thanks ~ Jimmyboy

Hello members! Thanks to everybody for posting such great shots of our favorite camera. To see the Mitchell in action from back in the day is a real treat. And a big thank you to member actioncamera for coming up with such a great idea. Here are a few from me.
