BDDL Commercial Shoot

So....this is kinda like a day in the Curious Life of MK. Life as a DP is great. Life as a DP from foreign lands, not so much. For starters, all the lights I know of are called by weird names here. A 2.5K Freznel is a "Solar", 5K is a "Panja", 1K is a "Baby". The open faced ones are called "Multi 20 (2K)" and "Multi 10(1K)". 

At least having your own camera system helps....

The shoot went great however. Much needed after the craziness of the last few. The director Badhon Bhai (over here you say Bhai to anyone who's older than you) is one of the few people here, who actually understands cinema, albeit he's kinda biased to the Bollywood scene, but still. This was the first time I worked with some big celebrity, some local kid named Apurbo, who despite his star status was very down to earth. 

I'll post the completed TVC once its done. Its in the color grading and music stage, done by yours truly of course.

PS Always sport SC gear!!
