Good friend to the site, Marc Lougee, has somehow found time between screening The Pit and the Pendulum all over the world and finalizing the DVD release to write a really interesting article about the setup he used in the making of Pit. He was able to put the entire rig together, including the PC, lens, cameras and everything for less than $2400. That is just crazy awesome. Anyway, it’s a very worthwhile read and you can check it out here.
Also, please take some time to read his tribute to Stan Winston. He shares a pretty funny story and it’s quite touching.
