BOSPOAT - Best On Set Photo Of All Time

Posted By Administration, Thursday, June 09, 2016

"A 15-hour work day doesn't seem quite so long when there's 20 hours of summer daylight," producer and PGA member Daniel Lawrence Abrams reminds us.  Dan's photo, "10:00 pm in Alaska," was taken on the set of his feature Mining For Ruby, which shot in Fairbanks, AK in 2013.  "Our brilliant and heroic director Zoe Quist was actually five months pregnant during production," Dan continues, "and yet we couldn't stop her from lugging gear herself in order to maximize the shoot's resources.  Every day, she inspired us all to work even harder."  You can find Zoe (also a producer on the film) in the shot just left of center, white top, arm raised.  Mining For Ruby's third producer (and screenwriter) Daniel Ponickly stands second from the left, facing the camera.

There are all sorts of payoffs to being a producer. One is the opportunity to see extraordinary things—like the late afternoon sun at 10:00 pm—that you’d never have seen otherwise. Another is the feeling of being part of a dedicated team, pulling together to make something great. We think both of those rewards are very much on display in this shot. Thanks for sending it in, Dan.

We know what you’re thinking. "Best of all time? No way. I’ve got an on-set photo way better than that.” If that’s the case, we dare you to prove it. Submit it to Before you submit, please review the contest rules at Because no matter how great your photo is, we have no desire to get sued over it
