I'm going to be working as the A Cam for a live broadcast of a local concert, with one of the involved bands doing something with blacklights (similar to Defying Gravity).

Has anybody worked under blacklights before? Obviously I won't wear white, but are there any other tips you can give me as to approaching this situation?

I usually wouldn't jump into something I'm so uncomfortable with, but considering my rank in the Steadicam world the pay they're offering is amazing.

I have a few more weeks to practice, but any tips would be appreciated!

Make sure you get all the lint and dirt off of all of your clothing and your rig. It will light up like a Christmas tree under a black light.
