July 17, 2005: More 2nd Unit Filming on “Superman Returns”

My sister Carol (Car-El) and I headed down to the center of Sydney again today to witness more 2nd Unit filming for "Superman Returns".

The filming once again took place in and around York Street near Wynyard Station. I didn't learn too much about what scenes were being filmed, but Dan Bradley (2nd Unit Director) was once again on hand shooting scenes involving extras and crowd reactions. No main cast members were involved.

Scenes we saw involved crowds running in panic, looking skyward (as Superman flew by presumably), and reacting to the whoosh of Superman flying by at high speed.

A camera was suspended on wires above the city street (packed with cars, taxis, and a bus). The camera zoomed back and forth along the wires (which were suspended by two large cranes) to a length of 3 city blocks.

I took the following photos and put together a video file (10mb Quicktime file) showing most of what we witnessed.
