I just noticed that throughout Mycroft’s meeting with Sherlock to brief him on an imminent terror threat, Anthea is holding a single manila folder:

From Mycroft’s dialogue, we could assume it’s a file listing underground terrorist networks, maybe some…

Sherlock BTS: A Steadicam Shot of Moriarty in ASiB

What are we looking at?

  1. Shiny board! This is a reflector they’re using to shine a bit of light on Andrew’s face so the shadow from the direct sun doesn’t obscure anything adorable.
  2. The Steadicam operator. The Steadicam is a marvel of human ingenuity and silliness. It allows the camera operator to follow actors on foot.
    Steadicam is a brand of camera stabilizer mount for motion picture cameras that mechanically isolates it from the operator’s movement. It allows for a smooth shot, even when moving quickly over an uneven surface.
    The motion of the shot is side to side but without the up and down bounce so the viewer feels as if they’re walking or running along, but they don’t get seasick! In these shots of Moriarty you get a real sense you’re walking along with him. The camera and the rig is all attached to one guy’s body and he often has a spotter to made sure he doesn’t fall on his ass.
  3. Windscreen!  This guy is protecting the Steadicam rig from gusts of wind that can make the picture shake.
  4. That’s Andrew Scott as James Moriarty. But you knew that.
  5. Sue Vertue, the producer is taking a walk with the crew.
  6. The boom microphone operator. He’s there to record Moriarty’s raspberry to Mycroft. The fuzzy bit covering the mic at the end of the boom is the muff (or “dead cat”) it protects the mic from picking up the sound of the wind. Not only is he keeping up with the gang while holding a really long stick, he has to make sure that stick a) doesn’t kill anybody and b) is never, ever in the camera frame.

"Martin has to go up a few steps to be eye level with Ben XD"
And, oh, how he loves to make Ben laugh!

It’s a great power he has.

I watched this for a loooooong time.

'Human nature', sir?

We feel a loss more intensely when it’s a friend.

But should not the feelings run just as deep, regardless of who has died?

Maybe they should, Data.

Why do we use fruits, vegetables, Twinkies and other food items to describe the idea of someone being [Race A] on the inside, [Race B] on the outside?

“Kat says that this would all be so much easier if we just used variations of potatoes for everyone. You know, “Yukon gold potatoes” for Asian folks who are charged with being insufficiently Asian or “red potatoes” for similarly situated Native Americans who ostensibly want to be white.”
