Two Man Crew (W13:D1)

Today went well considering we had (as you could probably guess by the title of the entry...) two crew members. Myself and my Gaffer Shaun Smith. We had a few reshoots to do as well as some bits and pieces needed for previously shot scenes. We also tried out a new lens we haven't used yet. It provides a 1:1 image, meaning if you were to have a lens like this on a film camera with this kind of ratio...a frame of 35mm of a dime would be exactly the size of that dime. This allows some serious depth of field on close up objects whether it be papers, coins, phones, eyes, or pretty much anything you would need to get extremely close to. We made good use of the lens today, I'm thrilled with what we were able to get. We have a handful of days left, we're not out of the woods yet but we are close. I'm excited to see this thing get wrapped up. Lots of post work coming down the pike.
