Does anyone else get this nervousness waiting to hear that the film is ok? I'd be devestated if it all comes out badly especially as I did the shooting for an old friend who really needs this film to be good. One thing I learnt is that if your shooting a film where you have a lot to do over a short period of time it's that you really need an assistant you can rely on as trying to think about everything from the creative aspects down to loading the film and doing the camera reports was just too much when working at such pace.
So tell me about how you all feel waiting to hear about the film you just shot, any disasters or surprises? I read in the Sight and Sound Cinematography Special today a quote by Dante Spinotti "A lot of cinematographers will tell you, We know what we're doing. But it's not true. We're guessing most of the time."
I certianly feel that I was making my own best educated guess while shooting and I just hope that it was good enough!
