The aerial photography for the film "Up in the Air" was shot from a Cessna Skymaster at elevations of 15,000 feet. Aerial director of photography Dylan Goss wore an oxygen mask when flying above 10,000 feet and rigged a contraption to keep the camera lens from freezing in subzero temperatures. Most aerial photography is shot from 500 to 1,000 feet, but Goss provided more realistic footage of cross-country flights between L.A. and Chicago.
