I just watched Molly’s game which uses VO quite well IMO. There’s a time and place for everything. As long as you don’t use it as a crutch for exposition, I think it can work fine.

First one is more concise and paints the picture better IMO. Unless the ‘whoop’ is extremely important to the scene/story id just leave it as siren.

Honestly I find pelican cases to be too heavy and bulky if I’m doing something in the middle of nowhere. If you don’t have access to power and a home base etc. then I want to be as light as possible....

Most colour and polarising filters (among many others) also require an exposure adjustment as they cut light (again, the nature of a filter), so your depth of field will often be different. Not sure...

To answer your questions:

When travelling to remote areas, that's when your luxuries have to take a back seat. For example, if you're camping out in the jungles of Africa, maybe the realities of the location mean you can't...

Most productions decide on a particular look in pre-pro. That’s how the DP knows what to capture & how to capture it.

I actually think the background of an experienced editor would be less likely to ‘screw up’ camera positioning as they know in their head what works in the edit.

I’d suggest a Director who knows...
