The Pilot is shot entirely during the day and mostly outdoors so ability to work in natural light and an understanding of your camera's ability to shoot outdoors is key. There are several vital vehicle shots so understanding of using a mount and filming in vehicles is a must.
****Almost all shot will be steady, not looking for handheld documentary type shots unless using some form of a steady cam.
