"Film making is a miracle of collaboration."

James McAvoy

OK... Now this is a very weird feeling...

Here I am, on the verge of stepping back onto a film set and I am feeling... Calm. Now for those unfortunate few that have been on one of my short film sets (and that is such a small percentage of the populous, let me tell you!), this will be a revelation. Usually I am still buzzing away at something - be it the script, the call sheets, the risk assessments, something. And yet as I take my first steps back into film making, there is an unusual sense of serenity. Why? What makes this so different?

The answer is simple - the team.

This evening, we had our pre-production meeting - the evening before start of shooting. For me, it was a chance to meet some of the key members of the crew - especially the guys I will be working the closest with. So Chris the DoP, Kris the Sound Recordist and Tom the 1st AD are on board. And I hope they know what they are in for!

What really came across from the meeting is that we are all on the same page! My God, this is a first! It has been a long time since this has happened. I am so used to having to argue on the little points that don't really matter, that when agreement is reached so easily I almost did a double take. Not only that, but I believe that I can fully delegate responsibility to these guys with 100% confidence. Again, having had to do each and every aspect of the shoot on my Todd has resulted in my lowering of expectations. After this evening, I am confidently raising them. One thing is certain - this is not the film crew I am used to... And I like this!

I have never believed in the auteur theory. No one person can be seen as the author of the film. Yes, some have larger responsibilities on the shoot than others, but there is no doubt that everyone's contribution is important to the film's success. Of course, a whole new level of chaos has the potential to rear its head when we get to filming - but for now, I am feeling very confident that we have a great team working on this lovely little film.

Wish us luck - Day One of Production begins in the morning!

When people do not get an education and they do not any knowledge about anything. Then they find it very embarrassing when people talk to them about different things and those people are unaware form all these things.

Wow! Your blog is very informative. I really enjoy reading your blog because of the useful content that you shared. Now I recognize what the important things that I could consider when it comes in film making. I've never known that you have a lot of struggles to finish a single movie. I think that teamwork is the best way to complete your precious event. And while I am reading your blog I notice that you did a great job in this area. I hope that you are happy with the things that you do.
