Callback has a camera. For all you tech heads – I did not get the Canon XL2 but at the last moment went for the Panasonic DVX1OOA. It was more affordable, requires less gizmos to get set up, and has an easier to use manual focusing system which, as DP Quickly won’t have a focus puller, is a big issue. Quality of the final product will not be compromised and I remain on budget. We also have a brand new set of legs, some filters and a nice blue carrying bag. And after spending all that hard-earned cash I got a free coat too! Thank-you Steve and everyone at Birns & Sawyer.
Insurance is proving to be a Catch 22 – unless I want to spend about 15% of my budget on insurance. And without an insurance provider I can’t start my SAG paperwork…and I have to file the paperwork three weeks before production can start.
I’ve been given a good address where to buy a wig for Joseph Wilt.
