Sahara sand storm
Two of the major challenges of filming a sand storm are keeping the equipment (and the crew) from being sand-blasted and getting the light right. In order to make the storm appear as impressive on film as it does in reality, the light needs to hit the sand storm at the right angle making position and time of day critical. It took 3 weeks and 10 storms to get these shots.
