Vimeo user Antonios Papantoniou has painstakingly analyzed what is widely considered the most impressive action sequence in the Indiana Jones series, and certainly among the most memorable movie scenes of all time – the “Raiders of the Lost Ark” truck chase – and has broken it down into type of shot, camera angles, camera movements, type of lens used, duration of shots, and number of edits. It’s a fascinating study of a classic piece of popular entertainment.
