Glad to hear that your crew pulled together. That was the big difference I noticed moving from feature films into regional television. The TV film cameramen looked out for us sound guys and vice versa...I would also carry lamps for the sparks, something at least two unions would have crucified me for in films! I expect that it's different in features now. Thanks again for your diary.

Thanks for the running diary. I was a gaffer (or juicer) in a feature film, and I can sympathize with the way you felt. Try moving 12K lamps in the middle of August in Florida -yecch! That experience turned me away from feature films. I prefer smaller productions now.

Nick, I love Four Weddings and a Funeral! One of my favorite flicks.
