How do they go through each scene and work out whether they can do what they want with the money they have? Surely this must be a nightmare! Does a cinematographer sit down with the producer?

But it does require sitting down with the director and finding out about the type of elaborate shots he has in mind for a scene so it can be properly scheduled and budgeted. If on the day, the director decides he needs to do a shot that requires a Weaver-Steadman head and you aren't carrying one, then you can tell him that a little warning would have been nice...
If you are doing things like remote crane or Steadicam shots, you also have to consider rigging and derigging time and whether it would be more efficient to pick-up a second camera for that stuff so you can shoot while they are rigging.

I'm still waiting until I have an evening free to sit down and watch Northfork! Looks brilliant!
