Well, sort definitely helps that they are soft back there. Same scene with a small sensor camera would have been a little rough...

If it's ok to ask:

@ 0:38 is that lens flare real or fake?

For "in-shade" parts @ 0:40 do you recall where his skin was on waveform monitor under SLOG? 30?
I don't recall (that was a whole season ago--we've shot 68 new sketches since then!) but I would guess 25 to 35, sure.

Lastly, how long your lenses were for the pool and the interior @ 1:04? I only ask because in the reflection of the silver platter lid I didn't see any obvious camera / crew (unless you really look way far at the back of the room in the reflection you can see a few little men in there I think).
The zoom on B camera goes to 250mm, we were probably between 200 and 250 for the beginning of the scene (if someone cared to do the math, it's the pool at the Hollywood Roosevelt which is Olympic sized, and the cameras were about 10 feet from the far edge). The interiors were shot on a mixed bag of focal lengths but I would guess the one at 1:04 to be around 100mm. The saving grace was that "Jaden" was up a few steps from the floor at that point so the dome is reflecting mostly above the camera. In many instances we will throw something over the camera and dolly to help with reflections (in this case it would have been a white sheet, vs the usual duvetyne) but guess we didn't really need it here. Alternatively we would have given the offending item a good dose of dulling spray.
