Dear Roger Deakins,

I was wondering what should a Director of Photography have with them on every set. Some say just a light meter but I wanted to ask you because you have loads of experience on set. What would you say every cinematographer should have on them, on set?

Kind Regards,

What about a camera and a lens?


Jokes aside; What I always bring is not something physical, but more a state of mind. I try to always have a good combination between vision and clarity. A vision about what I want to achieve, but clarity to see solutions on set.
