Video Diary (3)
20th March 2008
The third "Quantum
of Solace" video
diary on MI6 is a three-minute long feature which includes
scenes and gives a sneak
at filming from Panama with Agent Fields and James Bond on the
streets. Some clips from stunt sequences show Bond leaping out
of a moving
car, and jumping over a bar when shots are fired at Greene's
fund-raising party. Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, can
also be seen. It is also revealed that filming has taken place
in Baja California in Mexico where a unit captured shots of
planes for an aerial dog-fight.

Various cast and crew members talk about the
filming so far. First up, director Marc Forster talks about the
locations are characters themselves. When you choose a location,
the location as much as an actor speaks for itself".
Producer Michael G. Wilson discussed the aerial
sequence, "We have had them throughout the Bond films, but
for this one we wanted to have a kind of retro dogfight. These
are propeller planes, not jet planes. It is the type of plane
that drug runners would have so it fits the location".
The crew had to take three successive helicopter flights for
every trip to the location due to its remote nature. Second unit
director Dan Bradley said, "it’s a pretty arduous
task. We have aerial cameras. We have got two cameras on an Aerostar
and Spacecams on helicopters".
Pilot Skip Evans, who is behind the controls
of the DC3 plane, talks about the challenge of flying, "to
work this air plane in the bottom of the canyons you have got
to be physically strong
just to maneuver the air plane".
