Subject: [Videolib] Request: Films with tracking shots of Paris.

Hi Everyone,

One of our fine Film Studies faculty (Italian cinema aficionado) approached me today, and asked "a weird" request (his words), if I knew of film with prime examples of tracking shots of Paris (beginning of cinema to present)? These can be anywhere in Paris, and even include aerial shots though that is apparently not technically tracking<>. I am still in the process of learning my film technique, but I told him his question was not weird and I knew of some kind folks who might be able to help. If I need further information, do inquire.

So have at it: prime film examples of Paris tracking shots.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
