Despite your feelings regarding Martin Scorsese's Hugo, this little nugget of behind-the-scenes footage is a particular gem. For those who’ve seen the film, you’ll remember this as the steadicam one-take at the conclusion of the film. Props to Steadicam operator Larry McConkey for attaching the GoPro camera atop during the sequence.

Watching the actors hit their marks, furniture getting moved, and sets getting pulled out during the sequence is more than interesting, whether you’re a master filmmaker or a passing fan of film.

What do you think!?

Aside from the unnecessary use of 30 Seconds to Mars’ “Kings and Queens,” Martin Scorsese’s Hugo looks pretty awesome. 

Hugo (Dir. Martin Scorsese)

Ask yourself:

Would you honestly care about this film, if Scorsese hadn’t directed it?
