    Once again- so well done. How many people are on your crew and what cameras do you use?

      We use a tight crew to expedite filming and shoot in as many settings as possible each day we shoot; no more than 3-4 folks at a time depending on audio being pre-recorded or not. The crew is usually directed by Jamie DeWolf, a longtime collaborator based in Oakland, Calif.
