Great stills and insight into the production dailies of MI 4 April 3 2012
By Hengky Tanoyo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book thinking that it is going to be an "Art of" type of book. I was obviously mistaken. But it is still a nice book, nevertheless. The book chronicles the shooting progress of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol through the eyes of David James, the film's still photographer. The pictures were beautifully shot and conveys the grand design of the making of he film. The shots where Tom Cruise sits on the tower on top of Burj Al-Kalifah actually gave me sweaty hands just imagining the sheer height. This is more of a beautiful pictorial book for a high-profile film starring a high-profile film star.

Haven't quite seen this before! June 16 2012
By Jamil Bhatti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm a big fan of "Behind the scenes" and "The Art Of" books, but I've never seen one like this.

This book is a "Shooting Diary" which means it follows the structure of how they made the film as well as the still photographer and his experiences. I only wish there was more information in here. It's cool, but very light on text. I "read" this book in only a few hours, but I'll keep it around and go through it again.

Did you know that they used shredded cardboard to make the sandstorm?, or that they had to stop shooting when an actual sandstorm came through?! That's why I love books like this.

Mission: Impossible 4 - Shooting Diary Aug. 8 2013
By JMM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The book is somewhat different than anything I have seen before. It's a photographic diary of the making of "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol", from Sept 2, 2010 through March 17, 2011. In general, each day of the shooting schedule is chronicled with one still photograph (and a short text description of the day's work) - although there are some days that are not covered, as well as several days that have 2-3 photographs.

The book opens with a foreword by Tom Cruise and an introduction by the author/photographer. Other than that, there is very little to read in the book - it's all about the images.

Also, it's worth mentioning that the book is approx. 9.5 x 7.5 inches in area, which makes it a bit smaller than most other movie art/making-of books.

Things I liked about the book:
- A photographer spent nearly every day of the production on set/locations with the sole job of taking photos - and his images are often quite stunning.
- The book begins a few weeks before the first day of shooting - this pre-production period shows costume and camera tests, stunt training, etc.
- The several weeks spent in Dubai are the most interesting, given that it's the film's major stunt sequence on the Burj Khalifa - naturally, these are the most interesting photographs.
- Looking at the shooting schedule in chronological order as its presented in the book, it becomes apparent that the movie's scenes were not shot in order (very few movies are). It must be quite a challenge for the director and actors to keep continuity of the story/performances.
