Fincher was shooting The Social Network at Wheelock College in Boston. Leo happened to be in Boston close to wrapping for Shutter Island and accepted to participate.
In the film, the same hallway can be seen from the opposite side (min. 00:07:51):
This was shot by David Fincher on a RED ONE with a Mysterium-X sensor at ISO 2000 and a Master Prime at T 1.3 (or slightly stopped down from there). Key light is only a match. When the match goes out, Leo’s face goes black.
There is absolutely no noise reduction in this shot.
David did this as a favor to us, as did Leo.
Jeff Cronenweth, ASC:
There was a lot more light on the monitor than visible by eye in the scene itself.
