Expendables Just Got Easier

Umm...no. Moleskin, not Molefoam!
Getting started on a new show with a new crew usually takes a little getting used to. People are different and experience levels vary drastically in the reality segment. This includes PMs, PCs and their minion PAs that fetch us our expendables. Earlier this season on Catfish, I went through 3 attempts to get me the correct moleskin. It's amazing how things can get lost in translation when you need a very specific item. I finally got around to making a PDF, found here, that makes the selection process as idiot-proof as possible for a PA to identify and purchase exactly what I need without making 3 trips.

I give visual examples of what the correct item looks like in retail packaging as well as providing examples of the incorrect item(s). When possible, I provide model numbers or other indicators that will help the person make the right decision. Since providing this document to the proper personnel, I'm batting a thousand. It should be mentioned, however, that this particular document is based on my personal preferences. Some people may prefer rolls over strips or what have you. The point is that having something like this for you will simply make everyone's life a little bit easier.
