Please Hold was shot on a Saturday night and long Sunday journey into Monday. It was a volunteer effort with the hardest working, best damn crew in the land.
It was shot with a Sony F3 and a selection of prime lenses rented from Chater Camera in Berkeley.
Rob Jackowski and Mark Moniz from Tracy Rifle and Pistol, both just back from making the world safe for bad customer service in Afghanistan, were invaluable. Creative Video Services and PRP Real Estate gave freely of their offices—and we took.
Who knew two days in August could be so fun, tiring and productive?
