"Things..." episode 028.

028: Be careful with your stuff. Be real careful with other people's stuff.

Kyle Holman, Interplanetary actor and all-around good guy, let us borrow his electrical generator for some night shoots. Trap Traffanstedt, Interplanetary co-producer and all-around good guy, came up with this...

The genny never left the bed of Trap's truck--you can see a couple of extension cords running out of the tent and up into the building that served as our filming location. The tent protected the genny from the elements, and it stayed dirt-free since we didn't have to carry it into the incredibly dusty building. By the end of the night, I think it's safe to say the genny was our cleanest piece of equipment.

Oh man, you had to carry your own power? Boy, that makes shootin' a whole lot more hard, don't it?

Whew! At least the images were worth it. They look beautiful.

Yep, we brought our own juice. Considering the location fee (free!), we're not complaining that the location didn't come pre-wired.
