Director: Aaron Beckum, DP: Drew Bienneman My responsibilities: it was a small crew so I acted as a general aid, second ACing, gaffing, sometimes running sound, gripping, etc. Shot on an Arri 35mm film cam with a variety of car mounting, dolly, and tripod shots. Highlight: racing to set up the dolly in the middle of the desert in Joshua Tree before the sun set to get the last shot before wrap.
