I have a question that seems obvious, but I have to ask.
Recently I have found that our field crew has forgone white balancing while shooting in-scene material in many of the shows we produce. I am also seeing lots of poorly exposed shots, even in during set-up scenes where they can take some time to find the best lighting set up. Is this some kind of horrible new trend where quality standards are forgone in the name of expediency?
I am of the opinion that this is essentially videographer 101, and if it can't be manage these things then you should just stay home. I can't figure out how the DOP isn't looking at dailies and not having a full blown rage-stroke over this. Is this crazy?
