Rian Johnson's Leica M6 35mm film camera

Wall Street Journal – "How Rian Johnson Kept His ‘Star Wars’ Script From Leaking Online"

"One thing I had with me on set and used every single day was my Leica M6 35mm film camera from the 1980s. I bought a ton of very high-speed, black-and-white film, had the camera on my shoulder at all times and just snapped away. By the end of the shoot I had a couple thousand film stills. It kind of keeps your eye fresh on set because you’re always looking for interesting stuff to shoot."

I’ve been getting, “If you were only a few inches taller” … or, “If you were just a few ticks faster” … or, “If that arm was maybe a few yards stronger, son” — basically my whole life."
