The Preset Shop recently asked me..
What’s in my Bag?
Well the bags are a mess of Pelican cases that are beginning to take over, much like an unwelcomed invading army. I generally travel with 4. Two checked; a lighting kit either Profoto or Arri, and a Pelican 1650 with a Redrock Micro rig, follow focus etc; gels, barn-doors etc, one roller a 1510 and my assault pack, a hand-me-down from my old Platoon Sergeant then SFC Nail. A 1 to 4 ratio of personal goods vs. work essentials.
The “Bag” as it were is a fairly beat up Pelican 1510 case that doubles as a camera case and a mini bar. You wouldn’t believe what I can fit in there.
Here’s what’s inside:
Camera-wise: A Nikon D800, Nikon DF, Blackmagic 4K, Lenses: Zeiss 85mm 1.4, Zeiss 50mm 1.4, Zeiss 35mm 1.4, Zacuto EVF, a Moscow Mule mug stolen from Bar Lubitsch in West Hollywood, 1 cocktail shaker, two Profoto remotes, 4X 240GB SSD’s, an array of 32GB CF and SD all (SANDISK), Black butt-stock, Altoids, a toolkit in a Versace sunglasses case. Cigarette lighter, CRKT knife bought in Iraq at Camp Liberty PX. SDI to HDMI converter 4K, blue rabbits foot, and black tourmaline and quarts crystal.
And generally an array of mini bar sized liquors. But those are in the assault pack.. This list of ingredients right here makes for one hell of a finished product video or stills.
On the outside of the case, a Mister Bunny All-Nighter decal! Follow >> @rabbits999 on Instagram.
NB: None of these people pay me to say their brand. They should.
DON’T follow me on Facebook, because lets admit it – we all hate Facebook.
