Hi everyone!

I'd like to get some thoughts  on walkaways and what everyone does with their gear. I've only had a couple and each time I've packed up my gear at the end of the night and took it home. We were at a house, which the homeowner still occupied each night, so it made me wary. If we were on a secured stage, I might have left it and felt more comfortable about doing so. I do have insurance on my gear. I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on the subject!

Thanks!

Each situation is different. I think if you're on a major production with a proper camera truck or on a real stage then I'd probably leave the rig. Trust your gut. Ultimately, do you want to deal with an insurance company and be without your rig until you get a check in the event something terrible happens? That's how I usually find my answer.

I usually ask the ACs, "what are you doing with the camera bodies and lenses?"  That is where I want my rig.  I've seen "walk aways" where Production has the Cameras locked up.  Others are truly left in place as is with a space blanket thrown over them.  Also, make sure you have an insurance certificate from the Production naming you so its on their dime should they underestimate the security.
