Local DC Gaffer needed for a 5 day restaurant lifestyle photography and video shoot from Oct 2-6.
Shoot day parameters are quite straightforward - always indoors in one location all day long - and typically 10 hours, though we would prefer the flexibility to go slightly beyond that if needed. We never go beyond 12.
Our preference would be to bring on an owner/operator who owns a solid grip package and a handful of lighting fixtures that are suitable for small to medium sized lifestyle situations that might feature 2 to 6 models in typical restaurant situations. We never own or light the entire space. We've had great success in the past with Aputure 600/300/120 units, Aputure Accent bulbs, LED tube lights, etc., used with lanterns, diffusion and other modifiers. If this kind of gear forms the heart of your kit we'd love to hear from you.
And even though this shoot is at least 50% photography we may stick to continuous light at all times in order to quickly switch between photography and video. Even so, we will be bringing our own high powered bowens mount flash gear. If by any chance you have experience lighting for both video and photography please let us know.
Please also confirm that you are local and that getting to downtown DC and possibly Reston are easy for you to do daily.
Once we connect with the right person we may also have you suggest an additional grip person as well.
Thanks in advance for your time here, and for your interest.
