First Shots

Today was our first day of shooting. This wasn't on the official schedule; we had an actor in town, needed to get two shots with him, and basically did an unofficial shoot.

Glad we did an easy day. We have a lot to learn. Students didn't know what they were doing. Equipment was left behind. The DP gave us a list of what he'd need and then asked for things that weren't on the list. We didn't even have headphones for audio.

Fortunately, we only had to get two or three shots. It took us five-and-a-half hours to GET those shots, but I digress.

We don't shoot again until Thursday. Producer plans to take the reins on equipment and on drilling the students on set-up of equipment. I am hopeful we'll be in better shape on things. It was good to have a day like this to measure our inadequacies and know what we need to fix before things get crazy.
