  1. Awesome. On a side note, the single piece of camera equipment I have, besides a boom, microphone and camera, is the Fig Rig… named after Figgis. Gives me a whole new story to tell when people ask what the “steering wheel thingie” is that I use to handle the camera.

  2. Gawwwwd. In the midst of all this Lindsey Lohan / Paris Hilton / whatevertheheck the other ones’ names are crap, a slapstick, goofy joke about the most ubiquitous thing in LA – shooting pilots. Shoot ’em all. Get the lawyers while you’re at it. Trust me, they’ll come in handy.

    Going to bed with a smile on my face now… thanks!
