For all the polish my films my exhibit, much of their execution remains surprisingly low tech. I build my sets with floating walls to allow my camera to access hard to reach areas. With this set, the removal of the side wall also meant the loss of all that nice interactive light provided by the windows. To maintain continuity, using nothing more than some cardboard, 4 popsicle sticks and 2 pieces of dowel I was able to quickly put a temporary structure in place and was back shooting in less than an hour. It doesn’t look like much but you’d never know it from the finished shots. It’s easy to get sidetracked employing complicated solutions to simple problems. I love my technology but sometimes basic is better.
