Filmmaking Memes

It's always healthy to take some time and have a laugh.

An actor can be great on take three or take twenty three. A film crew has to be great on every take.

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners. I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is a gap....
