Providing Owned Gear
Recently I’ve been asked to provide a detailed list of my equipment to a Director. I’ve been hired as a third unit camera op and the Director has asked to know all my own personal equipment so that the DP can have the best equipment available for the situation. This is for a very low budget short film with well below award pay. Is this regular practice for a Director to require this? This feels beyond the bounds of what is reasonable. Any comment is appreciated, thank you.
