Shut Up, Jasun: Hardly Working

Production Run Day One. Finally finished. A new cameraman to train, the return of Jay Bentley. Shooting outside in the 113° heat of Palm Springs, we had a lighting failure, a near-disaster with a tripod knock-over, our caterer broke his ankle, my printer ran out of ink while printing out release forms… But we made it. Data transferred, Tyler Rush picked up at the airport, tomorrow’s scene all planned and I’m ready to tackle tomorrow after a nice long sleep. Which I really need…

    Hi Jasun, very cool digs. That house is not very far from my house in Palm Springs. So how does one get into the “behind the scenes” jobs. Like cameraman?? Love your blog.

      I have a pretty small crew that I hand picked from my friends who work in “mainstream” Hollywood movies and TV shows. Generally I just have a second camera (I’m first camera) and a PA who follows us around and anticipates what I or the performers need while we’re shooting.

        Hi Jasun, thanks for the quick reply. So it looks like you have a small community of people you work with. Also looks similar to all other companies, “who you know” for job possibilities. Have a great weekend here in PS. :-))
