These days, when it comes to modern media production and photo shoots, cost is a huge issue.…There is a lot of downward pressure to keep the prices low.…And unlike the old days where you could have director's chair sitting around and…a large craft service table while people were just happy to be on the set and…let the creative juices flow,…these days people expect things to be fast and efficient.…Now, you may have the benefit of finding yourself on one of those shoots with…luxury items, but for the most part, it's all about get in and get it done, and…so people want to save cost in modern productions.…
