Sony Cameras Take To Skies Shooting Top Gun: Maverick

In an era when CGI dominates high-adrenaline action films, the new Top Gun film, Top Gun: Maverick is proving that the best of the best prefer to do it the real way. The film features plenty of high-g-force, gut-churning in-flight action that was shot...well...in actual flight. To make the sequences come to life on the big screen, the team used Sony Digital Cinema cameras in the air to shoot live heart-pounding scenes like never before.

“This is a competition film about family, friendship and sacrifice. It’s a love letter to aviation. We’re going to show you what it’s like to be a Top Gun pilot...It’s amazing what we see in the cockpit and what the audience is going to experience,” says producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

“We’re working with a brand new camera system that allows us to put six IMAX-quality cameras in the cockpit with the actors,” says director Joseph Kosinski.
