The article presents information on the profile of cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel and his part in the movie "Paths of Glory." Delbonnel shot Kodak Vision 3274 and 5218, 200 ASA and 500 ASA, respectively. For printing stock he used Kodak's Vision Premier 03. But it was in the digital intermediate that he made his success with the color. The scenes in no man's land brutal as they are astonishing for their peculiar, even color. For this, Delbonnel rigged a 459-square-foot scrim on a 131 feet- tall crane. The silk scrim was dyed gray/green and, when visible through the stormy French skies, the sun shone through. When the clouds blotted it out, six French-made 18K HMIs did the job.
