It was on a cold Sunday night of January, i'd had spent a month in New York City, sleeping on the coach of my friend Arno, figuring out what to do with my life. My return flight to Europe was on the following day and of course, my existential questions remained unanswered.
I was having beers with my friend Dave and as we started to get tipsy, he drops: "On Thursday I'm leaving for a month to work as 1st assistant director on the shoot of an indie feature film." He added: "It's a post-apocalyptic story, we're going to be a small crew, isolated in the middle of snowy forest near the Canadian border".
Soon, we would realize how much the harsh winter conditions of Maine would make the shooting challenging.
This was not a run-and-gun corporate video shoot, but a real feature film with a crew that, despite its small size, worked like a finely-tuned machine.
There is not a day that I don't remember how meticulous preparation and clear chain of command is vital for any shoot to be successful, regardless of its scale.
