I love to get e-mail's from readers! Here is another one!
Hello, I've been a for about 4 years now and would like some outside opinions on equipment that you have, or have seen other scriptys use that make life easier. I work primarily in the southeast where many features are and shot on location. i.e. wind, rain, mud, etc. Instead of hunching over my notebook on my lap for 12 hours at a time, do you know of any good collapsible desks (for sitting and adjustable to standing height)? Perhaps a sturdy would work? Have you used anything like this in the past? I know there is a stand you can buy with the ScriptE software, however, I have not yet made the switch to computerized notes and am still rockin' the big, fat binder. Any suggestions you can give me would be great. Thanks!
I'm still rockin' the big fat binder as well! Last week I was on a job where we were out in a field for five days. Production provided us with camp chairs, the ones with the arm rest and drink holder went to the directors (yes there were two) and I got the one with no arms. After the first few hours of struggling to get in and out of their reclined camp chairs, the directors didn't use them anymore and just stood or kneeled to watch playback. I sat rather comfortably in my little armless camp chair. Thank you very much.
But that doesn't answer your question about having a stand or table. I like to travel light, so adding some sort of table to the chair would drive me somewhat batty on location. Maybe other scripty's out there have some suggestions?
