I’ve just been checking out the rushes of our latest shots for our indie film and was shocked to discover a monkey had been let loose on set.
I have no idea where it came from or where it went afterwards.
I didn’t see it at the time as I was investigating why the brand new bulb I’d put in the light had already blown.
On the last shoot we only had one Arri light working and the bulb went. So I decided to buy three new ones so that we’d have the full set to use. With about hour and half of shooting all three had blown.
The first one went for no reason at all.
The second one went because it toppled. I caught the light but it was too late as the filament blew from the sudden knock .
The third blew from me gently lifting the light to move it.
You have to be so careful with these things. I’m wondering if I just had a dodgy pack .
