1. GREASE IS THE AN­SWER

With a lot of mov­ing el­e­ments, we found our­selves us­ing graphite or can­dle wax as lu­bri­cants, and punch hole re­in­forces as wash­ers. Thank good­ness we still re­mem­ber playschool projects.

2. BRING YOUR TOOLS

If I had kept a Sharpie marker, a roll of tape and a Stan­ley knife firmly at­tached to my per­son dur­ing the shoot, I would have saved hours of an­guish. Next time, I’m go­ing to in­vest in a tool belt.

3. DON’T LOSE YOUR RAG

We had a large crew on the project with a wide range of skills against a tight dead­line. You learn very quickly to keep calm and prob­lem-solve while blam­ing no­body. Keep pos­i­tive.
