Austin Filmmaker on Superman Returns talked to camera operator/director of photography Todd McMullen about his work on Superman Returns:

Another career highlight came with “Superman Returns,” which is still filming in Australia. McMullen worked on scenes involving a spectacular disaster.

“We shot a lot of those plates where we kind of moved from the sky down,” he says. “We did a lot of setups and plate shots that way.” He says the actors will be filmed and added to the scenes later.

There’s also interviews with crew members who worked on Sin City and Road to Perdition at the link above.
