  1. 75% of the movie will be interior shots during the day. There will only be a total of 2 people, including myself, in the camera crew. I plan on using ND filters and a Black Pro-Mist 1/2 filter
  2. As much as I realize that there's never enough money, unfortunately we have to work with what we're given. This is only my second feature as DP. So I suppose what I'm looking for is some specific advice on what other DP's would do in my situation. What can I cut corners on? What should I NOT be frugal with? I've already decided that renting equipment may be the way to go.
  3. Thanks for the advice, George. But the $3000 is strictly for equipment/DP department and the other areas of production are already budgeted for separately.
  4. I'm the DP on a very low budget, extremely small crew, black-and-white feature film. I have a $3000 budget and a 3-week-long shoot. I'm looking for advice and recommendations on what equipment to rent/buy. For the majority of the production, I'll be the only person doing set-ups and operating the camera. I'll be attempting to use as much practical and natural lighting as possible. For the duration of the first half of the movie there will be little to no camera movement; mostly locked down on a tripod. But then the second half will be mostly handheld. I want to use a camera that's easy for one person to operate and performs well in low light situations. Once again, I have a budget of $3000 and plan on renting most of what I need. The following are some ideas of what I’m thinking of renting: Canon C100 Zacuto shoulder mount rig for C100 Rokinon prime lens set (14mm, 24mm, 35mm, 85mm)
