2nd time for me. Local fix it company and almost without exception, the local crew employed, where probably the worst I've worked with over 25 years in 60+ countries.

Some camera equipment we took from UK ..... the local stuff out of Mexico City( the majority) was disgraceful. It wasn't even that old, just poorly maintained and filthy. Electrical gear was so dangerous I had to request warnings be given out for everyone to avoid ANYTHING connected to the Genny. Open connection boxes, not even rubber mats.

Makes Man On Fire all the more impressive

Be warned. I wont expose the forum to any possible litigation but please feel free to contact me for details. tony@tonybrown.tv
