Check out this wonderfully shot opening tracking scene from director Derek Cianfrance's upcoming drama The Place Beyond the Pines, which stars Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper. I love a good tracking shot, and this one features the main character in his trailer and then follows him through the carnival that he works at as he proceeds right into his crazy motorcycle stunt. I've also posted a little commentary video on the film as well.
The Place Beyond the Pines revolves around "a professional motorcycle rider (Gosling) who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son, but when he crosses paths with a rookie police officer (Cooper) their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational feud." It's also been described as "a rich dramatic thriller, tracing the intersecting lives of fathers and sons, cops and robbers, heroes and villains."
It has a great supporting cast that includes Greta Gerwig, Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn, Ray Liotta, Ali Mahershalalhasbaz, Gabe Fazio, Max Martini, and Emory Cohen.
