BTS on a Hollywood Movie Set
Recently I did some Behind The Scenes stills for a Hollywood movie called "The Treasure of Pirate's Cove". It's a kid's film that borrows heavily from every action film genre in the last 50 years including Indiana Jones, National Treasure, and [generic pirate time travel movie plot here]. Actor Malcolm McDowell played the ship's captain, and I have to tell you it's a joy to watch competent people in their element.
Thinking "This is a Hollywood Movie, so they'll be using lots of light" I left my f/2.8 and faster lenses at home. Turns out that was a mistake - even the daylight scenes were lit with no more than 3 diffused lights. And they were old LED light banks, which provided its own set of problems when you're shooting silently (as one must do for this kind of assignment).
