Through proper connections, I had landed the opportunity to briefly operate on a film being made in Pittsburgh, PA. What's so unique about the film, is that it is being documented for a new TV series. The series is about two new age directors making a film with an identical script. As a first big gig for me, it was quite an experience to have the pressure of not only getting the shots just right, but also trying my best to not think about being filmed as well!
Overall, the experience was unparalleled. There are shots I am very proud of, and shots I wish I could've had more takes of. As a student, I could not have asked for a neater first time "big gig" experience. The pressure of getting the shot right, and also presenting myself on television was surely a way to desensitize me to the stress associated with a role of intense responsibility. I did catch myself quite a few times with bad posture - gah!
