Any impressions on the skill-set crossover with theatre technicians (electrics, mechanist etc...) compared to the grip/gaffer/camera depts in film ?
How about work ethic ?
Any good or bad examples of/from people who have worked in both industries ?
I myself found it interesting to watch from a theatre perspective the filming of the theatre scene in King Kong last year (we worked on for Big Primate as hired help in our own theatre) ...
Film worked on a much faster pace (gear flying out of the trucks) - not sure if that is indicative of the majority of the rest of the industry tho
any other opinions ?
