  • Over 1 million feet of film was shot for completion of the film.
  • Before the start of the shoot, director Terrence Malick and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki devised...Read more a series of photography rules that were to be used during filming. They were: 1) No artificial lights. Everything is shot in natural light. 2) No crane or dolly shots, just handheld or Steadicam shots. 3) Everything is shot in the subjective view. 4) All shots must be deep-focus, that is, everything (foreground and background) is visible and focused. 5) You (the camera crew) are encouraged to go and shoot unexpected things that might happen in accident or if your instinct tells you so. 6) Selective shots: any shot that does not have visual strength is not used. According to Lubezki, many of these rules ended up being broken. Artificial light was used (see above), as were shallow-focus shots.
  • Producers agreed with Native American leaders not to acknowledge credit to them until the final film...Read more met with their approval.
