What is this weird filter holder in front of Kubrick's camera?


Recommended Posts


Does anyone remember a split diopter shot in Eyes Wide Shut? I don’t remember a split diopter shot in any of Kubrick’s movies, but maybe it was just cleverly hidden (or maybe I just have a bad memory).

Nope. It looks like he's outside. So that could help narrow down which scenes to look out for.

for those that do not know.....

Kubrick was a photojournalist before he was a filmmaker. At age 17 started shooting for Look magazine in New York where he shot everyday life and celebrity portraits....he shot with a 'film noir aesthetic" that was new to photojournalism at the time (source: Vanity Fair)
