Feel free to laugh but I direct and boom at the same time.You can't direct from the boom's perspective.
If you are directing only what your camera sees is real.
I don't say it often, but if you can't figure THAT out yourself...
I'm not laughing at all. (There is a 'sad' truth is what you say.)Feel free to laugh but I direct and boom at the same time.
People want to use the camera, they think it's cool and they'll help out with the camera.
NO ONE wants to hold the boom and help out with the boom. it's just facts of life for me.
I can't get anyone to boom but i can get someone to camera, so I take what I can get.
As long as you 'felt' it took more time to stop shooting and watch the shot instead of that you know it does, it is a compromise that will ruin whatever time schedule you try to make.Yeah I can get a monitor and playback everything that has been shot after, if that's best. But I felt that constantly playing it back after it's been shot, took more time, ........
If the camera's stationary, especially during dialogue, there's nothing stopping you from booming yourself.Well the reason why I thought I might be the boom operator is because I have not been able to find many in my area, compared to the camera related jobs where their are more people. I don't have to be the boom operator, I am just wanting to be ready to take it on, just in case, so I don't have to do ADR again.
