I am curious to know how everyone else protects their gear on set, or for that matter keeps account of it all?
I'd rather not be the op hovering over my Pelican cases making sure no one is "taking" or "borrowing for good" any of my gear.
Obviously I'd rather be working on getting the shot and focusing on balancing my rig to perfection.
Does anyone keep their cases on lock down? Anyone have any horror stories of losing major parts of their Steadicam package? (Thankfully that has not happened to me yet.)
If you have had things stolen, how have you handled it with production? If something was "borrowed" (say a Leatherman for instance) and not returned, do you bill for it?
But most importantly how has everyone kept it from happening?
