Well, yes, of course, reading Mark Toscano's reply, there are all those films made at night. I saw one by Takashi Ito called GHOST. It was made in a dormitory in the company where he worked. And he wrote that he was sleeping like two hours a day because of shooting long exposures frame by frame. I highly recomend his work. SPACEY is very interesting. It uses animation techniques with photographs of a huge gym, but it seems like it was shot in the same painstaking conditions...I'm sure he didn't sleep much.

And let's not forget Jeanne Liotta's OBSERVANDO EL CIELO. I am one of the unfortunate one that hasn't seen it, but the clips look really good and I am sure she didn't get much sleep while doing it.
