I gaffed and key gripped this short film up in Santa Barbara and Lake Piru. This particular location was on an abondanded bridge. it took about 2 hous to set-up the dolly and the track. This was an impressive german dolly/crane with a computerized memory. My friend on the dolly passed away a few years ago from stomach cancer, he was only 27 years old. He was a great guy and amazing photographer.
 
I am powdering the track for a smoother ride. On this bridge we encountered many creatures including numerous tarantulas and praying mantisis.
 
This was one of the long days of the production. We spent all night in a Liqiour store shooting a gun shootout. I was done lighting and setting up my dolly. Here I am resting before the big shootout.
