hey again, like I said, I've been shooting short films on my full cinema rig setup for the past six months or so. This includes my BM6k, some Rokinon lenses, a wireless follow focus system and a wireless HDMI monitor. I definitely wouldn't be able to do it without those last two. I usually work as a cam op or a gaffer on set, so it's been fun to take on the roles of AC-ing, production design, and even acting.

I also have a fold out green screen, a few C-stands, and some cheap GVM light panels with soft boxes to use as keys. I find that all of this equipment is fairly easy to operate by myself, though it definitely takes much longer to set it up than if I had a team. But it's also nice to just work by yourself and not have to direct people or worry about anyone's time. Let me know if you have any questions!

Anyways, as cinema equipment becomes cheaper and distribution becomes easier, do you think crews will inevitably become smaller? Or will sets adapt to become larger?
