Doctor Strange picture Doctor Strange mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: After Doctor Strange experiments with the magical doorway in the Sanctum Sanctorum, he leaves it on a desert view and we cut to a shot panning across all the artifacts. At the very start of the shot on the right hand side of the screen is a crewmember standing in the shadows looking bored. Really blatant if you turn up the brightness, but easy enough to spot if you know what you're looking at. (00:56:00)

Suggested correction: There is also the world media outside filming the survivors entering the hotel. To say it is a camera operator, while statistically true, can't be classed a mistake as we don't know if it's a member of the media.

This is the actual camera filming the shot. That's a mistake.

Where exactly? looking at the scene it's hard to tell the difference.
