I had a dream two nights ago that I went to prep my gear for a shoot, and opened my sled case to find my own sled missing, and it had been replaced with some kind of futuristic flyer model... at which point I realized I wouldnt be able to do the gig because it was an alexa shoot. Then I looked to find that my arm had been swapped with some kind of over sized efp arm.

Anyone else ever have unusual dreams related to steadicam?

Every time production doesn't have a prep day, I have nightmares about the camera build.. Often times those nightmares turn into reality.

Every shot requires missionary to don Juan (Goofy side which I did not prepare with) sprint 350 meters then head into a tiny tunnel and climb stairs, then running downstairs and a full stop in a corner. 
and each time I had that dream, it begins at take 10, which Im already exhausted. 
whole crew just can't stop laughing at my clown moves....

forgot to say it was low mode and my right hand was holding the battery rack....

I have some operating naked dreams. Then I realize that I'm awake and operating naked.

That's crazy, I just had a dream that I offered the DP to use a ring light and I got upset when he said no.

Years ago, I used to dream in my sleep about what big rig I could own one day.

I just have dreams where I'm late to work, or I've overslept and still need to load my car with gear. Anxiety dreams. Oh well!

I just have dreams when I fall asleep at work during a long day…. I'm home in my PJs with a glass of Cognac and my beautiful wife while it snows outside and I don't have to go out there.
