Last night at NewSpring was my normal rotation with the production team. I was assigned to a camera 3 down front next to the action. That cam is mobile and we usually have a cable runner to help keep things straight and untangled. Last night we were short handed. Though I had operated solo before, it is a challenge to stay free of the wires.
Early during run through, I suddenly felt a slight pressure on the cable. Looking around I saw staff member Ben Coleman drop what he was doing and pitch in to act as my Grip. A cool thing about the team is that we are just that. A team working for one goal. Without being asked, Ben filled in making my job so very much easier.
Thanks Ben for your willingness. You are tops my friend.
