Director of photography Reynaldo Villalobos said of shooting in Los Angeles, California: "One spectacular shot that just could not have been duplicated on a sound stage was Tom Hanks' dance number under the Riverside Highway overpass. The light, the rain and the depth added to the drama of the scene". Villalobos had first worked with David Seltzer on Lucas (1986), and they found that they were very compatible. Seltzer said of Villalobos: "Rey is an artist and someone who could direct in his own right. We would both be looking at a shot and discover that we had come up with the same idea at the same time. It was almost like telepathy".
