On set: "Saving Lincoln" stills & EPK video

I was hired by producer Reuben Lim to shoot stills and BTS/EPK video on the all digital feature film "Saving Lincoln," starring Penelope Ann Miller. I can't release any stills yet, but here is a BTS shot of me rocking the monopod.

< This is the 5DMKII video unit I used for the BTS/EPK interview footage of "Saving Lincoln."  That's a Rode NTG-2 mic with XLR out to the DXA-SLR XLR input.  From the DXA-SLR to the camera for in-camera synced dailies without the pesky AGC (or auto gain control) issues.

Because the microphone shockmount malfunctioned, I had to include 2 adapters (the gold bolt and red Zacuto doohickey).  All mounted to a Manfrotto monopod.

< My one-man-band gear bags.  1) RT - camera bag with lenses  2) LFT - audio bag 3) BTM - Misc gear bag.  Tripod & monopod.  Despite all the expensive gear, I was most excited to finally use my tripod-chair.
