Hi all;

Just a kind of fun "this is what happened to me the other day".

Shooting a Music video on a roof top, no rail guard. We're not close to the edge or strapped for space but there is no rail guard.

Grips are all over keeping me from the edge but the DP, nice guy, loves to hook up the LCD HD monitor to see an image before we shoot. He wanders more than I am comfortable with behind me and immediately I realize if he goes over I go over too.

(Mental image him first, gear and me, all going over like a cartoon and I'm oblivious until I feel the rig being pulled away. Think of that snapshot of your face at that moment.)

We get the grips to "reign" him in and all is well but believe me I kept him in close contact every time we had that monitor hooked up. I have a sweet 7" LCD they can monitor from when shooting and I'm transmitting, best new money spent.

No story beyond that.
