TNB130912 — Director Tips for Camera Ops

On today’s Tech, No Babel: Director Tips for Camera Ops

Having been spent time in both the director’s chair and in the camera operator seat, I thought I’d share some of the tips I’ve picked up so that camera ops can be as helpful as possible to their directors:

1. Allow extra time in the shot.
2. Keep an eye on the screen.
3. Plan shots and always have an alternate plan.
4. Listen hard.
5. Lead up; don’t resist leadership.
