Jonathan Ochmann (vimeo.com/patchflyer) kindly shared with me an amazing animatic he created to explicitly show what Spielberg and legendary DP Douglas Slocombe did on the day to capture this shot.
So much happens in 94 seconds that you never even realize there is not a cut in its duration. It's magic...
