Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Staging for safety, part of Practical Motion Background Workshop.
So the funny thing is, those of you who didn't skip this movie probably are already safe.…Hopefully though, some of you are watching this movie, because I want you to not…ruin your gear or cause any problems on set.…Just want to go over a couple of suggestions to keep a safe environment as you…are going to be working.…First off, you're probably going to be shooting in the dark, so you're going to…want to have the ability to turn lights on and off easily.…Make sure you have a clear path to the light switch.…And if you need to do anything major, turn the overhead lights back on, so you…don't trip or drop equipment or knock things over.…
Additionally, make sure you keep all of your things safe at hand that you're…going to be switching out.…If you're planning on swapping lenses, put them on a table or a sturdy surface…nearby, so you can minimize having to leave the camera.…Just store things so they are easily within reach and the lenses won't roll…or fall on the ground.…Another thing to keep in mind is make sure you have a clear path around your work area.…
