Very fun scene yesterday morning. Lots of creeping and full speed doorway dolly action.
Starting the work day at sunset can have its benefits, assuming you’re working at a pace to appreciate it.
I’m discovering a lot of cuts all over my body after lugging two 1.2k HMIs and two pieces of 4’x4′ beadboard with mombo combos through the only thorn bushes we could find.
What 2800 watts in the middle of the woods looks like.
We got smarter as the night went on. This is not typical.
This is not the worst I’ve seen, but it’s pretty good for only a few hours.
Last week I had the pleasure of teaching the Basic Lighting & Grip class at Maine Media Workshops. It was a week of long days in an old familiar place. It was great to be back there and I was lucky to have such good students and a killer TA. Below you will see a panorama of one of the setups we had in the stage.
A dolly shot with TV light effect, brancholoris, car headlights wiping through faux Venetian blinds, a door that swings open to create a shadowy figure and, of course, a gun reveal in the final frame.
