Matters of Perspective

This last bit was the smallest crew I have worked with since my first documentary internship. I was sort of revelling in the tiny simplicity of this shoot in comparison to the large and hectic reality shows.

I was basking in the tinyness of the production when, while the 24' foot jib operator was getting his shot a single cameraman with a DVX-100A showed up firing off footage for an ESPN promo and left before we even managed a jib move with our @$65,000 Sony HD camera. The best part was he knew the jib man and the camera man knew someone he knew.

There's small and then small. But the guy with the pro-sumer camera was working for a network with a lot more subscribers. All matters of perspective, I guess.
