Left handed boom operator union!

 

8)

When I was booming, one of the most useful skills I taught myself was to be able to boom left and right handed. I'd switch to whichever way suited the shot best. Usually so I could face the camera, sometimes so I could bend around a corner for a bit more reach.

Once you are used to this, you forget which is your natural side.

I love this! At least 4 people pushing the dolly/crane (well, look at the size of the camera!) and 2 people on pushing the boom. 

Why didn't they just give one of the background players a GoPro and wire everybody?
