Handling Criticism on a Film Set

Receiving feedback is usually hard.
We human beings just don’t like when others feel entitled to tell us how we should have done what we have done.

In a creative industry like film, it's a daily thing.

But it's not just creatives who encounter this, it’s also part of the technical side of filmmaking as well.

Remembering names on a film-set

I noticed how one of the 1st ADs I worked with recently remembered my name only after one short introduction. Even after not having worked together for a week or so he greeted me by my own name.

I was curious if it was something that came naturally for him, or he was working on it deliberately.

Multitasking on a Filmset

A couple of years ago as a newbie in film industry I was frustrated with the endless incoming line of new tasks.

Each new one overwriting the previous one in importance. Feels like we have to work on multiple things simultaneously.

If you look up multitasking everyone says, “just don’t do it”. “Create a work environment where you don’t have to multitask.” But is it possible for us in film industry?
