I only worked on Dragonfly a handful of days, but being on set was a pleasure for many reasons. First, it’s always a blast to be a part of larger productions like this one with so many moving parts. Second, this crew was an absolute blast to get to know and extremely easy to work with. Even with a 19-hour final shoot day at an art gallery (yes, 19 hours — many of us were delusional come 2 a.m.), everyone on set worked together like a well-oiled machine.
I spent a lot of time in the lighting department acting as a gaffer to help ready the many lights that were needed for each scene throughout the gallery. The lighting crew was also in charge of blacking out the windows with large black frames because we shot a lot of footage during the day and the scene was set at night. I was busy in other areas as well — I helped sign in extras and assisted them in filling out their talent release forms, I helped with the distribution of the three meals on set one day and even spent time managing props and helping construct the scene with the art department.
This was one of the most rewarding productions I have worked on to date.
