Making film is a peculiar process. Time slows down to an almost infinite tardiness when you’re filming 30 minutes for a bit of footage that will eventually be cut down to 6 seconds. At the same time, when you’re directing the whole operation, those 30 minutes pass by mind-blowingly fast. The cameraman wants to know what kind of angle you want, the light technician where you want the ambient lamps, the soundman what kind of microphone you prefer and the actors what you expect of them in that particular scene. At the same time your opinionated star actor keeps putting on those “cool” glasses you find so repelling while your continuity person suddenly realises that an all-important bag of sweets in the background was accidentally moved three inches to the right two shots ago.
