In an age where anyone can easily shoot thousands of pictures, why should television and motion picture productions invest in unit still photography? For many budget-conscious productions, especially independent films or shows, this question leads to skimping on unit stills. Saving money without scaling back production value seems like a win-win, but it might not be the best long-term strategy.

Greg Dyro, DF Studio’s expert on motion picture and film production, makes a compelling case for the importance of unit still photography.  In a feature published in MovieMaker magazine, Greg shares valuable insights and offers detailed, actionable tips on how productions can leverage their on-set photography.
