Time Capsule (short)
PRECIOUS. In early December I 1st ACed a senior thesis film for Vivian Chen of CalArts. We had some extra time, so a little actress learned how to pull focus. She had it good, too - DP Sean Carroll’s RED MX with Arri follow focus (there’s a reason it’s $2K) and Zeiss compact primes. I got some good experience cowgirl-pulling focus (without marks) and operating the RED.
RED cameras are heavy. I’m strong for a girl, but even if you’re Shaq there are smart ways and stupid ways to handle heavy equipment. I look forward to learning all the smart ways.
Vivian and Sean are awesome.
