Visible crew/equipment: After getting the $30,000 off the drug dealer LT is shown high and staggering around the dealer's apartment building. As he walks down the last flight of stairs you can see the camera's shadow fall across LT and the wall next to him. Also, at this point, a foot can be seen (possibly a crew member's) carefully moving out of the way on the floor above at the top left of the screen. (01:01:44)
