Great description, Todd. And you are lucky to have the same crew for ten years. That speaks volumes about your choices and also how you lead the pack.

I'm afraid I haven't had a full-up shoot such as I described for at least three years. On the most recent shoot (just this week, three commercials in two days,) I had one gaffer/grip with one large LED light on a pole and another small one for car interiors that went right on the camera. Mostly hand held or else on sticks. No monitor at all. Oh but we did have a "dolly": a wheel chair. Shot with the Canon EOS c300, which I like and in some ways don't like for this quick style shooting. And I had an AC to wrangle data and lug stuff around, and a sound guy to both boom and run radio mics. Each one terrific. I miss the great full-ups but you make what you can get as great as possible!
