I've got two Pelican 0350 cases, and one has a big crack in the bottom that apparently happened at the factory - the boxes were undamaged. I bought the two and left them in the boxes for several months before taking them out, so I think I screwed myself in terms of a warranty replacement, and the procedure for it are more hassle than it's worth. Pelican isn't worth the cost, in my experience.
Congratulations to Ryan! Here's to 2017 being the beginning to a fast rise for him in the film world.
Food - breakfast bars or something. I've been on shoots where food was poor or absent and REALLY needed the boost from having food in my stomach.
Small white, gray and focus cards.
Benadryl for allergies. (I think they might help a little with minor reactions to insect stings.)
Sunscreen, ideally a spray that leaves no greasy residue.
A few cable ties, Bongo ties, and my favorite - Matth-Ties, good for more than just butterflies and such.
Foil hat, bazooka, blow-up doll, the usual stuff...
Any reader comments about the use of carbon particle lens pens? I've used one a little on a lens I wasn't particularly attached to and it seemed okay. I keep one in my bag to be used only on a UV filter.
45 seconds of content told in three minutes - now THAT is concise storytelling.
I made the mistake of going for a CC subscription once. It installed fine on one current (at the time) Mac, and fine on the other one - except for one program that would no install no matter what. Adobe told me I'd have to reinstall the OS, which was factory installed to begin with.
I told them - not asked - that they were going to issue a pro-rated refund on my year-long subscription. As I was speaking to the rep on the phone, I told her to email me a confirmation of the agreement - while we were on the phone call - and to an email address not associated with the subscription. (I didn't trust Adobe to honor what we'd agreed on.) Once I got my confirmation, I told the rep which email address was associated with the account and at that point we shut off the subscription. I did get my pro-rated refund.
Generally Adobe's got good software, but Adobe itself is a terrible company in terms of customer support.
