August 22: Sitting

I do a bunch of random things for this documentary, and one of the things I do is sit in the chair that the subject is going to sit in while the DP and gaffer figure out where the cameras should go and how the lighting should be set up.

It is an odd experience, sitting there while two men stare at your skin intently in different lights. Then they wave their hands over the lights to see what the difference between having the lights on and not are. It's not uncomfortable to me, rather, I have to fight the urge to laugh and laugh the whole thing I sit in the chair.
