Hey gang, got hired last minute on a picture as a camera op, but got bumped down to 1st AC since I knew more about AC'ing than the other AC's hired (still a great team though!) But that's not the point of my post. I have two MB-20's that we are using which were sent with 5.65x5.65 trays (4x5.65 vertical), but we were sent 4x5.65 filters for the MB's. So my problem is that there is a huge gap between the top and bottom of the filter when I put it in the tray and turn the tray sideways so it's properly in front of the lens. My temp fix was to use paper tape on the gaps, but that's not really ideal for keeping light from bouncing between the filters and lens when you need to switch filters often. Am I crazy to think we should have been given 4x5.65 trays when we were getting 4x5.65 filters?
Any suggestions over using paper tape? We have hard mattes, but I don't fully trust them to not give us ghosting on the images.
