9 THINGS THAT SHOULD BE FASTER ON SET
Despite working in our dream profession, it's hard not to wish the work days would go by faster. Imagine if everything sped up just a little bit more so that we could get to wrap quicker. Here's our ultimate list of the 9 things that would make the setlife a better life if they happened faster.
1) GETTING THE CALL SHEET FASTER
That look at the bar at 2am when you finally get the call sheet and call time has been changed from 9:30AM to 5:30AM.
2) GETTING TO THE MARTINI SHOT FASTER
Call it whatever you want to call it... just make it happen.
3) GETTING TALENT ON SET FASTER
We know, we know, you're "talent": after getting your breakfast & coffee order exactly the way you want it, posting on Snapchat how you're "Almost to set!", then through wardrobe, then chatting up the EPs, then checking Facebook and Instagram and getting through HMU then finally strutting onto set like you're the second coming... Please know that my call time was 5 hours before you woke up. K? Thx.
4) GETTING BACKGROUND OUTTA THERE FASTER
It’s better for the AD, it’s better for crafty, it’s better for wardrobe, and it’s just better when you really want to GTFO.
5) GETTING PAID FASTER
Ya know what, we’re not even going to go there, we know this is just too painful to talk about for some people.
6) GETTING THE CREW MEAL FASTER
7) GETTING THE SCENE LIT FASTER
The big kicker is getting everything set for daylight then the decision to change to all tungsten is made.
8) RENDERING FASTER
In an editing booth far, far away there is an editor who has been staring at their progress bar for 27 hours.
9) GETTING COFFEE RUNS DONE FASTER
16 Mocha Frappuccinos in the back of your car and a 90 degree
summer day is as close to living the plot of "Speed" as you'll ever get.
