Just, you can throw a long lens.…We'd built them up in a couple of layers.…Just standing two of them against the wall, letting that light stand tuck back in there…and leaning the third one right in front.…

It has this…layered neat look of a backdrop in front of a backdrop, and the front one covers up the scene behind.…So Eric is sort of working as a voice-activated boom, and he's going to hang an umbrella, which…has got a flash which was, what was it? 8th power, quarter power, right around there somewhere. It's a quarter?…
