First Day On Your First Film With A 5 Person Crew

Your first film set can be a big undertaking, and you need to be prepared or your filmmaking journey will be over before it begins.
Where do I shoot?
What do I need?
What should I prepare for?
How many people do I need on my crew?
Who does what??
Do I seriously have to feed everyone?!
Having started out with a 4 person crew years ago, and to this day, we still attempt to keep our crews as small and efficient as possible, we will discuss all of these questions, and more on this episode!

I’m probably in the car on the way to the studio. Which, as it happens, reminds me of a conversation I had with Steven Spielberg about what was the most difficult and challenging thing about directing a film. And I believe Steven summed it up about as profoundly as you can. He thought the most difficult and challenging thing about directing a film was getting out of the car. I’m sure you all know the feeling.
