Mark-
Thank you, this is an excellent summation of the role of meters in digital production. I love your visuals.
If I was rich I’d ask permission to produce an Edgar Wright directed video or a graphic novel version of this email!!

Knowing that final exposure will be set at the camera is fucking useless when you are standing in say, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in a scout where you have to decide how many crew, trucks, generators, and lights you are going to add to the existing light if it is a sunny days and you want the shafts of light coming through the Rosette window to hold their color.   (You know if If you light it for sun, you know you can  scrim or dim down for clouds.)

The difference of one stop in this case is three electricians, two generators, and another twenty-four foot truck, which means four more Local 817 Teamsters.
