there & ready
Christopher Doyle starts here with the frustration of an error due to a moment's inattention, and stresses the importance of "being there" on set.
Chris also speaks about "being ready" for collaboration, giving the example of the magnificent collaboration between the late Harris Savides and Gus van Sant, on the director's so-called "death trilogy": Gerry, Elephant and Last Days.
