I am a DP based in NYC getting ready to shoot my third indie feature. I'm curious to hear what other DP's do to prep for feature projects, and also what do you ultimately bring to set with you for principal photography?
I've been working on ultra low budget indie films and would love to hear some other perspectives. I understand the importance of prep time (creative meetings with the director, tech scouts), but also know production doesn't always go as planned (due to weather and other unforeseeable circumstances) and time is limited during production so being able to adapt on the run is important rather than trying religiously to stick to a lighting plan.
This is a broad subject but I'd love to hear: what do you do to prep, and what do you bring to set with you during principal photography?
Thanks!
