Behind the scenes
Elaborate staging, with a crew of about 30 people, takes hours before a Gregory Crewdson shoot. At about 4:30, Brandon Taylor, left, who said he is the "beauty and the brains" but who is officially an additional grip,and Patrick Garstin, the best boy grip, remove a "No Parking'' sign from the street where the shoot will take place. The shoot will begin at dusk.
