Hi,

I've been loading for a few years on 16mm shoots but have recently been hired for my first 35mm job. The camera is an Arricam and I'll have no test time with it. Any hints, tips, and insider pearls of wisdom will be gratefully received...

Thanks.

Stay calm. The Arricam mags are the easiest 35mm mags you'll find. You don't have to care about loop length or threading perforation holes. I suggest you download the manual from the Arri website and read it carefully.
It's a good idea to always have something like a toothpick at armslength to set the counter on the magazine.
Is it possible for you to meet with the 1st AC while he/she is prepping the camera? Or to visit a rental place and ask them if could try loading a mag?
