SAN RAFAEL, CA, December 14, 2011 — The Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol cast and crew traveled the globe for six months to create the most spectacular film in the blockbuster franchise to date.
British born unit photographer David James was there, documenting every moment of principal production with stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, and Paula Patton. They braved sandstorms and crashed cars in the streets of Dubai, dove underwater in British Columbia, evaded explosions in an old Czech prison, and scaled the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa. James’ Shooting Diary is a remarkable visual record of these exhilarating stunts and exotic locations in Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol.
This collection of photography will captivate any action film lover. It provides an in-depth look into the world of live-action filmmaking by one of the most lauded photographers in the film industry. A diary of incredible behind-the-scenes images and candid shots on the set, Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol Shooting Diary is the perfect companion to the film.
