- I am not really interested so much in the "one person" limitation. Having professional on camera talent, a sound person, or a production assistant doesn't change the situation that much from the PoV of the cinematography. By preference I will always work with an assistant/fixer - But "one-person" and "run and gun" play well together so I'll take it.

Jack: You got it - my question relates to camerwork only - not producing, directing, etc.
