How many of us have been on sets where bored grips have constructed crazy erector set contraptions like windmills out of C-stands and flags? My typical shooting style was always a huge setup followed by minor changes between shots. So we'd need a bunch of gear and crew to get everything ready and then they'd sit around waiting for a relight.

ah ah ah! I saw truck drivers making BBQ behind their vehicle many many times (usually ending up with the director and actors preferring it to the catering) but that rig beats them by a long way! :D

mmm...i'm already hungry :P
