Commercial Shoot Day 2, Location Dana Point California
This really was a amazing location. The view was breath taking and for sure the camera doesn't do it justice... The challenges were that because this was a small production we really didn't have the power or manpower to shut anything down. All day we were fighting construction workers running jack hammers, tourist wondering into the shot because of the lookout point, and then the wind. The wind picked up and for some strange reason I didn't have my dead cat for the mic that day.
But we survived and got the shots we needed. The quick and dirty fix for the microphones was to put a small flag up right next to the mic blocking any wind that might be coming from that direction. It did the trick.
