We recently shot some video for a client whose business is cold-storage warehousing. They have many different rooms of varying degrees of chill, as the products they store are mainly perishable foodstuffs. For a particular video sequence, the room we were shooting in was a chilly -2 degrees fahrenheit! Not only did we have to bundle up with layer upon layer of clothing AND a special freezer jacket, but the camera and reference monitor also had its own special insulated “jacket” with warmers!
So what’s it like to work in those conditions for an extended period of time? BRRRRR! Yes, it’s very cold! And you never quite get used to the sensation of your nose hairs freezing!
