I find it abhorrent to be there at monitor like i the idea of breaking fiction that i've worked so hard to develop and seeing a grip have to move some furniture. Put a light standing like makes me wanna vomit and so hurts for me when the crew shows up nowadays. It's like okay. I did it casino. Hands like i'm moving on. I can't be here to watch you guys. Destroy this world. Because you've got to put gaff tape on the floor. But i think you're corrupting this beautiful room for sure. And i think over time because it's just like mind-numbing to see like the crew show up with their the bottled water and stuff and so like nowadays. I'm kinda like okay.

I'm familiar with a lot of them. But for a lot of people out there. Especially if they're coming from the camera department or the on the super indy level. You know the draftsmen.
