Seamus McGarvey: On Dailies

From American Cinematographer, A Fractured Family by Duncan Petrie (November 1999)

"What was wonderful about the production, in spite of current trends and our lower budget, was that we were able to have film dailies every night. This became an amazing point of bonding and cohesion during the shoot, particularly given the isolating and lonely spot we were in. After a hard day's work in the freezing wind, sitting and watching the previous day's rushes really knitted us together as a crew and gave everyone a common sense of purpose. That type of experience is very unusual today with the widespread use of electronic editing; as a result, people can sometimes feel very dislocated from a project."
