A moment that will always stick in my head from the Bucky shoot was on the very first morning. It had been a fairly frantic process putting all the crew and equipment together and although I knew all that was sorted, I hadn’t had a chance to get a sense of how the rest of the production would work. How would the cast be transported? Would there at least be a jar of coffee?
DOP Ed Moore and myself were discussing safety, operating and related aesthetics of shooting out the back of Danny’s Jeep. The first shots of the day were already ‘in the can’ and so the team swiftly moved onto the next sequence of tracking along with Bucky’s bike. You think sitting on the back of a Jeep with a camera is simple, but try it with the weighty Steadicam on and it’s a whole different game.
