three questions,

1) are there any specific items on a set that you covet? Clapper boards/ important props/ scripts.

2) do many of you keep packs of info/stills from all your previous jobs to use as handy ref.

3) does the urge for more gaffer/blackwrap ever go?

thx

You mean besides a fully equip gaffers truck?

Yes, C-stands, I'm always short, and circuits. And I seem to always be 1 lamp short of perfection.

Never discount pre, and location recces. Invaluable and always wish I could do them with cast. I also covet a director who emphasizes with being a lighting cameramen on a low budget, or at least a director on the same page as myself (part of the problem could be me).

No I do not keep stills, I keep notes (written) on what or why my plan didn?t work and how I would rectify the problems if I did it again. The same way I do not have photos of family, friends and holidays, its there in my head. Like performance, lighting has to be organic. Lighting plans are good but I always seem to throw a light in here and there which only on the ground I could see.

I don't think urges go, they just get replaced with other things, just like in high school.
