Before shooting a job do you experiment much?

Recommended Posts

On a union feature film or TV series, there are paid prep days in the budget so any testing would occur then, usually in the week before shooting begins during the camera equipment prep & pick-up if the tests are simple. It would happen within a normal 8-hour work day (hours during actual production are longer often but there is usually no reason to work more than an 8-hour day in prep.) Testing expenses have to be pre-approved by the production manager.  If you had to spend your own money on something, you'd fill out a form for reimbursement.
