Greys anatomy Musings
Grey anatomy is still shot on 35 mm film, one of the last shows to be still shot on film.
Typically it takes 8 days to shoot an episode, cost 4 million $, and takes 6 weeks from start to finish.
Each day generates 2 hours of footage, and is 75 % time shot with 2 cameras.
As an editor: one looks for:
GEOGRAPHIC – where who is – wide shot
EMOTIONAL – reaction shots
STORY - information, what is conflict.
MUSIC and SOUND is a character treat it as such
As a director one tries to bring the best out of the entire crew.
The show needs 42 minutes 19 minutes and 10 frames to be exact.
