Cole;

The checklist is really good and could be helpful in the future when there will be someone else besides me on my sets :)

Btw and totally off topic: My gf is a fencing instructor (commenting the film on your website) and the balloon trick was totally new to her :)

We've been doing that for quite a while ;) makes it approachable for kids and nervous adults.

on topic: The checklist is almost more important with a smaller crew as you have so much going on alone, you need to have that reference for yourself so you can focus on the stuff in front of the camera more fully and leave the other technical bits up to the checklist...better productions that way. Just reconfigure the list to suit yourself and your shooting style.

I would not underexpose, you can turn down the master ped and set-up level. It will be contrasty but not look under lit.

Make sure if you are exposing by the meter that you never let it hit 100% (to allow for some error, I use 90-95%. It pushes the picture very slightly dark, but I tend to crush my blacks in post anyway...so I'm doing it in camera here to save time in post...and I like the aesthetic better...I find it less "I'M VIDEO!!!" than letting whites shine through at 100%.

If you are talking zebras, I put them on 80 and make sure that there are no zebras on peoples faces.
