      Hello everyone,

      This forum is such a wealth of knowledge and has been a huge source of help as I grow in my field (currently a small time gaffer) so first off, thank to everyone who participates here.

      So my question is what questions do you ask (yourself and others) before a shoot? Every shoot is different and every script calls for it’s own style, but what questions do you ask as you formulate that style? And for on set, what questions are you asking yourself as you prepare to light a scene?

      I am very interested in learning what questions to ask myself both to find the look of a film, and questions to ask myself on set to achieve that look.


      Thank you to anyone who responds!


      P.S. also curious about what questions people are asking themselves to decide on composition as well, I can post in that sub as well, or can it all be answered here?
