Director J.J. Abrams and some of the stars of The Force Awakens discuss using the IMAX cameras while shooting the latest Star Wars film: [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Vd_GsC-VPE[/youtube] As an aside, I think Harrison Ford‘s nose scratch is one of his more subtle tells that he’s uncomfortable in an interview.
