Really much more burly than it looks. A wide fist crack. Next time I will tape the shit out of my hands, drop some gear to the minimum and bring some Vicodin and neosporin. It didn't go too well. I couldn't even aid it by pulling on gear. You will not need anything bigger than a #4 C4. Really the gear is your biggest problem as it just gets in your way. Place as little as possible. Maybe like three or four cams total.
