“Don and Brian had the camera with
Jackie Robinson whenever possible. If
he is moving, the camera is moving. If
he is running the bases, the camera is
right in his face, leading him around the
bases.”
Burgess says he used “a little bit of
everything” to achieve camera moves.
“A lot of the dramatic scenes, such as
the ones in Rickey’s office, called for
slow moves, so that took us to dollies or
cranes,” he says. These included a small
Felix crane with a Mo-Sys head, which
“we could put on track and use to get
literally every shot in a scene with
complete freedom in every axis,” recalls
Moriarity. “In Rickey’s office, it let us
pass the camera over the desk and wrap
it back around into a close-up of Rickey
without the move ever really being
noticeable. You could call that ‘a quiet
crane!’”
Burgess calls his approach to 42

the camera a lot, to keep it moving, and
