This production photo of Mad Max features, from left: Chic Stringer (stills photographer), Garry Wilkins (sound recordist), Harry Glynatsis (camera assistant), John Hipwell (unit manager), David Cassar (grip), George Miller (director) and David Eggby (lighting cameraman).

This behind-the-scenes production still reminds us that there is a lot of waiting around on film sets. It takes time to prepare a shot with numerous crew members needing to be on hand.

Also evident in this photo is the often casual and informal culture among the crew on set, particularly when not filming. It makes for an interesting document.
