    Besides a 50 Nikon and a 120 Zeiss it was all Samyang/Rokinon.
    Breathing bit me only once during this production, since we don't do much crash racking,
    usually our focus pulls over longer distances are very gentle, so you don't realize how they breath.
    And yeah, we had some shots under 2.8, but most of the time it's around 4.

    Thanks god, I have Marco, my very good swiss first AC, he literally pulls focus like a swiss clockwork, even under 2.8 if this is what we need.

    Also looks like your shooting all Roks again eh? Question, has the breathing ever bit your ass and do you ever shoot below 2.4 on those things? Excluding the 16mm since it can shoot wide open IMO.

    I've seen this done with a dolly but I think this way might looks better! The dolly is to smooth. This way seems like you'd get tiny little jerks and speed changes, thus selling the shot even more. Gonna try it with the kids when they get back from the summer. Thanks for the idea Frank.

    LOL - yeah but stepladders don't walk around.

    And this photo also clearly explains why you're not concerned at all about mounting the URSA camera on your shoulder! Your camera operator will have fun telling his children about that take.

    We just plug them into wall outlets. Dedolights are just 150W (though they are much brighter, than the numbers suggest, because of the special lens/mirror arrangement).

    We use monitors and EVF on the cameras plus one 24" directors monitor for each camera in the video village.
    Part of them is over SDI cable, but we also have wireless video on one camera.

    Frank two quick questions:

    How do you power all this lights ?, do you use a generator or only all conectors?

    and the other is:

    Do you use only monitor in set ?, not EVF ?, Could you tell as what you are using on sets?
