sotto la pioggia

Steadicam shot

This is what it's like to shoot a 12-second segment in the rain with delicate technical gear mounted on a steadicam rig. Two umbrellas, a white bounce for lighting, and a whole lotta plastic wrap protecting the battery pack and remote follow focus device. Not to mention the number of crew members around the camera.

The boom swinger in the foreground is looking over his shoulder to see if there's anything left in the box of pizza bianca the key grip (big guy to the left) got to first.

Your average rainy day on a Rome film set.
