Looks like he already has an Exovest - no chest straps!

Which got me to think.
Was there any situation where you would switch your arm side? Is it worth training in both ways?

Well in my little 3 years experience there were 2 situations I actually did switch to goofy. Unfortunately I'm way too used to regular so that goofy feels very strange - so I now sometimes switch at home and practice.

One situation I switched was the following: The character was sitting and the camera was supposed to start behind his left shoulder and move straight in over his shoulder. It was low mode btw... Had I not switched I would not have been able to continue the movement since the actor would have been in my way... Sure I could have walked Don Juan backwards but as it was only a straight move with no big headroom changes I rehearsed it a few times and it worked out pretty well!

The other shot I switched to right side operating was also a straight move on the left edge over a table. There were no framing changes as well so it was no big deal.

It's a real problem. Not for ''off topic'', maybe...
