DP - Gaffer Relationship
Jacob Mitchell posted a topic in LightingHey everyone, I'm currently a student studying cinematography, and have found some dilemma when working with a gaffer. Often times I am very controlling in pre-production; I know exactly what light I want where with what gel and how many foot candles it will read. However, I feel like just handing my gaffer a floor plan is a disservice to them as a part of the creative process. What is your experience/take on the Gaffer-DP relationship? Where are the lines drawn? Who does what when in pre-production? Thanks a million!
Hi guys! Let me introduce myself, I am an international student in Arizona and currently I am in college majoring in Media Communications. When I transfer to a university I was thinking about getting a bachelor's degree in General Business or Management (still have to decide which one's better for me), also I thought about getting a minor in Digital Film making, and a minor in English focused in Creative Writing or Rhetoric and Professional Communication (still have to decide which one's better for me). I thought about this because the film making industry isn't all about just knowing how to create a movie, but also how to manage the business of the film industry. That's why I thought it would be better to have a BA in Business. Also, I thought of the minor in English because a lot of filmmakers need to know how to write well, have a critical thinking, and be creative. My main questions here are: Is this plan a good idea? Or do you guys think I should get a BA in Digital Film making and get the minors in Business and English? Hope you can help me and thank you very much for reading! :)
