A post dedicated to photos and videos of the VideoFirst film crews at work…
It’s rare we ever bother to pick this stuff up ourselves. Sometimes clients, actors or even passers by step in and snap something interesting the film crews are doing. As a rule we stick strictly to the blind side of the lens but it’s always fun to look back at some of the things our film crews got up to over the years!
