Being part of this crew was awesome! One of the most memorable projects from my time at Columbia. I really got to understand how smaller crews operated and took on a broad range responsibilities. I aided the Director in many ways, for instance, during the pre-production phase I contributed by finding the locations where some of the main scenes would be shot at.
During production I was able to help in achieving some of the unique shots in the video by overseeing lighting of the subject and even pushing a wheelchair in order for the camera operator to achieve a dolly-like movement.
When not directly helping the Director, I would be taking behind-the-scenes photos to promote the video on instagram.
We used a mirrorless Lumix camera as the primary camera. Our team used portable LED lights that had temperature dials along with a drone in order to capture the unique opening shot over Chicago.
