As we arrive in Lowell, MA we start immediately planning our shoot for the remained of the week. The main schedule will involve three days of work. First day, mostly B-roll shooting, second day, covering the main event and filming interviews, and finally third day dealing mostly with logistics from backing up footage, transferring everything accordingly, and returning rented gear.
Speaking of rentals, we typically use BorrowLenses.com for a lot of our shoots. They provide an outstanding service at all times, and for bigger rentals they even put you directly in their VIP support system, with priority everything. Make sure you check them out next time you need to rent lenses, cameras, lights, or whatever else you can imagine. The prices are fair and the quality of the equipment is just perfect.
And on a side note, if you use them through this link, you are actually helping us without even having to pay extra for it!
As soon as we pick up the rented gear, we're happy that we got a big car. We typically choose our lights based on each project needs, scope, and budget. For this case, we got a couple of LitePanels and ARRI lights, some of our current favorites for indoor interview usage.
