We would just drive

"It was basically between [cinematographer] John Campbell, Pat Baum, who was the sound person -- between the three of us we were sort of 'The Crew' and then there were, say, two or three actors. And we could all fit in a station wagon. Which is sort of how we made a lot of the movie. We would all get in one vehicle and drive to where we were supposed to go. If it was an apple orchard, we would just drive until we saw an apple orchard and ask the person in the house if we could shoot."
