Go up there and check PODCASTS.
#13 in my series with Kelley Baker, author of the superb ANGRY FILMMAKER SURVIVAL GUIDE — Sound Conversations with (Un) Sound People… this time we discuss the no-brainer (that isn’t) “Check All Of Your Equipment Before You Shoot”. Seems like such a simple thing. Beginning filmmakers are so trusting! They assume the rental house or equipment people at school have their best interest at heart! Don’t you know they all want you to fail? If your film goes down the drain because they “accidentally” left the plate off the tripod, THEIR film may get into Sundance!
How can you not know this stuff?
Listen to the podcast, and you too will understand the secrets of the Ages. Especially regarding counting scrims before you leave the rental house.
