comin' off C-Bale's head and whatnot," because there was mad glare, and it was real bright. And I'm all, "Who's in charge of that," but, check it,
in charge of that. So, I didn't want to stop the acting or whatever so I just used myself to block some of the light because, and I'm not trying to kiss my own ass or anything, but I'm a totally
resourceful DP/light technician, everybody always says so. Some people would try to find blinders or splashers or whatever but I thought, "I don't have blinders or splashers, I just have me
," so instead of standing around like an idiot with my ass in my mouth looking for splashers, I just used myself to block the light, I wasn't even in the way.

People are always coming up to me on sets like, "Seriously that was the best f*****g lighting I've ever f*****g seen in my entire f*****g life and I'm like Steve Spielberg or whatever." Literally.
But then anyway, so I'm standing around set like right after I finished doing the lights and I'm like s**t, because I remember C-Bale telling me about how it's distracting when someone's in the scene but not in the movie, or whatever. So I figured the only thing to do would be to, like,
