I do work in the movie business plus do a lot of stuff with the gear.
I work with the supervisors of low budget movies.
I am constantly on the set handling cameras, microphoness plus lights for the actors. It is not exactly the highest quality of movie that we are doing. But, our task is truly great. So yeah, I have to say I am impressed with how well kept all of these sets are for being a low budget style of film. One thing I really like about the task is that the movie set constantly has the most ideal temperature control. If there was a such thing as the perfect heating plus air cooling setting, the set is what has it. No matter what time of the month it is they constantly have the perfect heating or cooling going on! The heating in the Wintertime is so perfect you would have no clue that it is around 20 degrees outside. Then in the summertime months of the year you would be shocked that it could be in the 100s outside with the rate the air conditioner machine is up and running. Again, for such a low budget set, you would think there would be no heater and a/c use! Running the heating plus air conditioner cannot be too low cost either, then you have to spend our money for general service date plus also small things like air filter changes, new freon plus updatement parts. I am truly thankful to have enjoyable temperature control when at work.
